In the Supreme Court on November 7, 2017, 46-year-old Glenford Gilbert Bermudez, a.k.a. “Bucket”, was brought before Justice Adolph Lucas for his mitigation plea. Bermudez was accused of shooting and killing his wife on November 22, 2017, and at his mitigation he was very apologetic.

On November 22, 2007, Bermudez shot his wife and later attempted to hang himself. Later that day, after admitting the crime to the nephew of the deceased, he was arrested and charged with the murder of his wife, Racquel Violet Bermudez.

On April 27, 2011, he was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.  In June of 2013, he appealed his life conviction and the judges of the court of appeal on November 1, 2013 granted his appeal and ordered a retrial and at the retrial, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

In court, Bermudez’s attorney submitted a testimony signed by the Kolbe Foundation’s Rehabilitation Officer who spoke well of the inmate who spent the past 10 years behind bars. Bermudez himself explained that while in prison, he was active in many programs including the Wagner’s Youth Facility, the Return to Freedom Program, and program where prisoners are taught the Word of God.

After hearing from the prisoner and his attorney, Judge Lucas deferred passing a sentence until Friday November 10, 2017 so that the defense attorney Oscar Selgado could file the testimony of the Community Rehabilitation Officer in the form of an affidavit so it could be properly accepted into the case before the court.
