From Fox 5 Atlanta:
ATLANTA - Maurice Nesbitt was not present in court Friday as a jury declared him guilty of murder and the Fulton County District Attorney's Office said the public should be on the lookout for this now-convicted killer.
"This man is dangerous," said Fulton D.A. Paul Howard. "He was dangerous to [ the victim] Rashawn Jackson. We don't know whether or not he presents a danger to the Jackson family, he said, urging the public to help locate him and turn him in. Howard said Nesbitt had cut off his ankle monitor and cannot be located.
In 2014, 34-year-old Jackson was found shot in the head and deceased in an apartment complex off Campbellton Road in southwest Atlanta. Her mother apparently made the discovery, investigators said.
Prosecutors told FOX 5 News Nesbitt repeatedly beat and abused Jackson over six years, and prior to her death, she hoped to end the relationship.
Nesbitt, then 35, was arrested on murder charges and allowed to be released on bond by a magistrate judge, prosecutors said. He was arrested once again after a 2016 failed court appearance, but failed to appear in court Friday for the jury's verdict and sentencing.
Nesbitt was given a sentence of life in prison, Howard said.
Anyone with information on Nesbitt's whereabouts is asked to call the Fulton County District Attorney's Office at 404-613-3230, or their local law enforcement.
Thoughts? I have to say- as ridiculous as it is that Nesbitt was given bond in the first place- how the f is he still allowed to be a free man during trial AFTER missing a court appearance in 2016.
What's also very sad about this case is an earlier article interviewed Rashawn's family and they discussed how after three miserable years they were "finally going to get justice.": www.wsbtv.com/news/local/emotional-testimony-in-trial-of-man-accused-of-murdering-girlfriend-in-2014/615882886
Now thanks to that moron Judge's mistake, that long wait for justice has to endure again.
I can't find any articles since the above one about Nesbitt fleeing, so I'm assuming that he is unfortunately still at large as of this posting date (10/15/2017). If anyone has any other updates otherwise, please feel free to let us know.
And if anyone knows where Nesbitt is, please do the right thing and call it in. Rashawn's family has suffered long enough.
