Albert Moody of the Jane Usher Boulevard area has been acquitted of the charge of attempted murder upon Kent Moss. Moody was accused of the January 15, 2013 shooting of Moss on Raccoon Street. Moss, a resident of Freedom Street, was conversing with a friend on a verandah on Raccoon Street when a lone gunman came from behind the house and fired several shots in their direction. Moss was hit three times to the body and was rushed by ambulance to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for treatment. Albert Moody was charged later that same month for the shooting. However, a letter dated May 14, 2014 instructed the Magistrates’ Court to withdraw three indictable charges of attempted murder, dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm upon Kent Moss. No reason was given for the withdrawal.

Though three charges against him were dropped, Moody was not free to go home. He still has two other charges of attempted murder pending against him. In court on Friday, May 23, Moody was represented by Attorney Kathleen Lewis who asked the court to grant her client bail since he has been on remand for the last seven months. Lewis told the court that the two virtual complainants in the pending attempted murder cases, Elroy Perdomo and Steven Lambey, intend to drop their request for court action against Moody so it would be an abuse of process to remand him any further. With that, Magistrate Hettie Mae Stewart granted Moody bail in the sum of $5,000 plus one surety of the same amount or two sureties of $2,500 each.
