Former Rutgers University football player Izaia Bullock, previously entered a not-guilty plea to two counts of attempted murder in the first degree, two counts of conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree and one count of cyber harassment in the fourth degree, but today he rejected a new plea, that would have resulted in a maximum of six years in prison.
The crazy thing is Bullock must feel he is 100 percent not guilty because each 1st-degree charge carries a 10 to 20-year sentence.
According to NJ.com, Bullock rejected a maximum four-year prison sentence last month that would’ve made him eligible for supervised release after six months.
Bullock is accused of initiating a plot to murder the family members of an acquaintance and making it look like a murder-suicide, prosecutors said after a grand jury issued the indictments in February. Bullock allegedly discussed forcing his ex-girlfriend’s mother to drink a fatal beverage containing crushed medication.
The crushed medicine, a mask and several other things were found in his car, after his friend co-operated with authorities and recorded him talking about the plot.
Either way, it sounds like the prosecutors are trying to do him a favor, but he is not comfortable pleading out, this will be interesting to see how many years he actually receives.
