Green appeals manslaughter conviction

Jason Green, Russellville, has officially filed an appeal for his case that went to trial in February. He filed his oral notice of appeal March 14 and his official written appeal March 21. Green is to remain in custody pending the appeal.

He was sentenced to 20 years in prison for manslaughter Feb. 25 after a jury found him guilty of manslaughter, possession of marijuana second degree and possession of drug paraphernalia. The jury’s manslaughter decision was based on evidence that Green was a concurrent cause or the cause of death by aiding and abetting his girlfriend Shay Nicole Ledlow’s death.

Ledlow was found dead from a gunshot wound to her mouth in 2011, and was Green was arrested on the scene.

He pleaded guilty to manslaughter as part of a settlement in February 2015, but he appealed his case in 2017. The judge granted him the Rule 32 petition, he received a new attorney, and he waited for his trial, which took place in January of this year.
