Plea Agreement In Barrett Case

Plea Agreement In Barrett Case

A plea agreement has been reached in the Jeremiah Barrett case in Calaveras County. The Amador County man pleaded guilty earlier this week to one count of voluntary manslaughter and a special allegation enhancement on the use of a firearm in the death of Wesley Smith.  Barrett was facing one felony murder charge in the second degree and three felony manslaughter allegations following his acquittal of the second-degree murder in the death of Daniel Haney and Terry Looney Jr. on Oct. 20, 2015.   Presiding Judge Susan C. Harlan said the plea agreement called for a stipulated sentence of six years in state prison with a 15 percent conduct and work time credit available.  The remaining charges facing Barrett from the October 2015 shooting were dismissed by Harlan in accordance with the plea agreement.  Haney, Looney Jr. and Smith were shot and killed at a marijuana farm on Railroad Flat Road owned by Barrett’s brother, Leon Grammer.  Barrett’s sentencing is set for 1:30 p.m. May 24.   He has been held in Calaveras County Jail on $3.45 million bail since his arrest.
