Parties to Discuss Plea Options for Homicide Case

A DC Superior Court judge continued a hearing for a murder case, so parties could discuss plea options.

Aaron Jackson, 40, is charged with second-degree murder while armed in the fatal stabbing of 36-year-old Jamaul Crockett on Nov. 5, 2020, on the 600 block of Lamont Street, NW. 

During the Jan. 25 hearing, defense attorney Bernadette Armand asked Judge Judith Smith to continue the hearing so she could talk with her client and parties could discuss how to proceed.

In December, the prosecution was reported to be preparing a pre-indictment plea offer. 

Judge Smith scheduled the case’s next hearing for March 3.
