Randy Trebar Found Guilty Of Manslaughter In Bay County
A Bay County jury convicted Randy Trebar Jackson on Wednesday of manslaughter with a firearm in the shooting of a Panama City Beach man.
Assistant State Attorney Bob Sombathy showed jurors during the three-day trial that Jackson, 24, of 1128 S. Gay Ave., Lot 39, shot to death Ryan Christopher Brooks on July 10 during a botched robbery.
Brooks and his co-defendant, Joshua Smith, went to the Club
Apartments on Richard Jackson Boulevard to meet Brooks and Joseph Cannizzo under the pretext of buying marijuana, but Smith and Jackson planned to rob Brooks and Cannizzo and it resulted in Jackson shooting Brooks.
Jackson was found guilty as charged of manslaughter with a firearm and attempted robbery with a firearm. He faces up to life in prison when Circuit Judge James Fensom sentences him Feb. 19.
