Goshen- A judge yesterday kept his promise of a 3½-year state prison sentence for one of the men arrested after a fatal shooting last year in the Town of Wallkill.
Corey Inniss, 23, of Middletown, pleaded guilty last month in Orange County Court to second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a felony. He was originally charged with second-degree murder in connection with the Nov. 26 shooting death of JaMar Nelson, 28, of Middletown, at KJ’s Restaurant and Tap Room in the Town of Wallkill’s Scotchtown section.
A grand jury found insufficient evidence to indict Inniss on the murder charge, and he pleaded guilty to the weapon-possession charge after Judge Nicholas DeRosa agreed to cap his sentence at 3½ years.
Inniss doesn’t have any previous record.
Prosecutors wanted 9½ years. The maximum is 15.
