The Office of State Attorney Glenn Hess announces that on May 24, 2019, Jermaine Deshon Monlyn was found guilty by a jury in Bay County, Florida, of Battery on Law Enforcement and Resisting an Officer Without Violence.
Assistant State Attorneys Nichole Pieper and Barbara Beasley proved that during the execution of a search warrant, Monlyn, a resident of the apartment, came rushing into the apartment after being cleared by officers and refused to obey all commands given to him and cooperate with investigators on scene. The evidence established that during the search, Corporal Darby Gay attempted to detain the defendant and was attacked. It took three officers to subdue the defendant. Circuit Judge Dustin Stephenson scheduled sentencing for June 24, 2019.
