The Office of State Attorney Glenn Hess announces that on February 12, 2019, Jerome Roulhac Jr., was found guilty as charged by a Bay County jury of Attempted Second Degree Murder with a Firearm after the jury deliberated for just over an hour. Roulhac had been in an ongoing dispute with the victim. After an argument with the victim, Roulhac returned to the victim’s home, exited his car, and discharged a firearm at the victim. A neighbor witnessed the event and immediately called 911. The case was investigated by the Panama City Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Peter Overstreet. Roulhac faces a minimum mandatory 20 years in prison under Florida’s 10/20/Life law, and a maximum of 30 years in prison. Sentencing is set for March 20, 2019 before Senior Circuit Judge Allen Register.
