Barrett Back In Court

Barrett Back In Court

Jeremiah Barrett was in court again Friday morning.  The Calaveras County man is facing a murder charge after a mistrial in mid February and was scheduled to enter a plea.  However instead of entering a plea, Barrett’s lawyer Ken Foley at the start of the hearing said he had received a proposal from the DA, and needed to talk to his client.  Calaveras County Deputy District Attorney Brad Jones agreed to the request and a new hearing date of April 24 at 11 a.m. was set.  Barrett's charges stem from an October 2015 incident where Robert Daniel Haney, Terry Glen Looney Jr. and Wesley David Smith were shot and killed at a marijuana farm on Railroad Flat Road owned by Barrett’s brother, Leon Grammer.  In his previous trial, Barrett was acquitted by jurors on two felony murder in the second degree charges in the deaths of Haney and Looney. The jury could not decide on a verdict in the death of Smith.
