The Office of State Attorney Glenn Hess announced that on March 28, 2017, a Washington County jury found Daryl Wayne Mollett guilty as charged of Attempted Felony Murder with a Weapon and Armed Carjacking.
Assistant State Attorneys Shalla Phelps Jefcoat and Laura Wahlquist presented evidence that Mollett, while on the run from authorities who were attempting to arrest him on an outstanding warrant, came upon the victim as she was returning from a run in the Sunnyhills subdivision, hit her in the head with a brick, and stole her vehicle. The victim sustained serious, life-threatening injuries. The case was investigated by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Sentencing is set for April 17, 2017, where Mollett faces a potential sentence of life imprisonment. The State will seek a Habitual Felony Offender and/or Prison Releasee Reoffender sentence.
