Jessup man is sentenced in stabbing

January 04, 1996|By Norris P. West | Norris P. West,SUN STAFF

A Jessup man who fatally stabbed his brother in 1991 pleaded guilty yesterday in Howard Circuit Court to stabbing a man on Washington Boulevard in 1994 and robbing him.

Johnny Lee Mouzon of the 7300 block of Wye Ave. pleaded guilty to one count of robbery with a deadly weapon and was sentenced by Judge Raymond J. Kane Jr. to 6 1/2 years in prison. The judge issued a 12-year sentence, but suspended 5 1/2 years of that term and ordered Mouzon to serve three years of probation after his release.

The sentence will run concurrently with a 10-year prison term he received in October for robbing a Washington Boulevard gas station and assaulting a clerk.

In court yesterday, Mouzon admitted to leaping from behind bushes onto a man who was walking along Washington Boulevard early July 4, 1994. He stabbed the man and took $170. Police say the victim has recovered from his injuries.

Mouzon served about four months in jail after his manslaughter conviction in the 1991 slaying of his older brother, Joel Louis Mouzon.
