Tim Norman Sentenced To Life In Federal Prison
Tim Norman Star Sentenced To Life In Federal Prison
Tim Norman finally received his sentence after a six-month wait, on Thursday morning.
The former star of Sweetie Pie’s was sentenced to life imprisonment in federal prison for the charge of murder-for-hire against his nephew, Andre Montgomery Jr. In September of last year, the jury took over 17 hours to deliberate and reach a verdict.
Last week, Tim Norman took to social media and wrote this, claiming his innocence with a caption saying “#innocent.”
Three others have been charged and pleaded guilty for their roles.
In October 2022, 31-year-old Travell Anthony Hill was sentenced to 32-years in prison after pleading guilty for his involvement as the shooter.
In his plea agreement, Hill admitted to meeting Montgomery’s uncle, James Timothy Norman, on the day of the murder. He also stated that he understood that Norman wanted Montgomery killed.
Back in Nov. 2022, Waiel Rebhi Yaghnam, Norman’s insurance agent, was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.
In January 2023, 39-year-old, Terica Ellis, was sentenced to three years in prison.
She pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit murder-for-hire.
Ellis had been facing a maximum 20-year sentence.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the judge said there were several factors in Ellis receiving a three-year sentence, including the fact that she had been forced into prostitution at a young age. Ross also stated Ellis’ testimony against Norman and said Norman would likely have succeeded in the scheme whether Ellis helped or not.
Within the last week, Tim Norman’s attorneys were fighting to keep him from receiving a life sentence.
In court documents, the attorneys pointed out several arguments.
In one analysis, it talked about Norman’s troubled childhood and his efforts to give back to the community as an adult.
The court documents said, “In sum, the ‘history and characteristics’ of Mr. Norman strongly favor a sentence that is no more than 20 years.”
Also among the court documents were several letters from Norman’s supporters including his mom, Robbie Montgomery.
She told the judge, “I am writing to you to ask for mercy for my son.”
It was a week-long trial in September and Tim Norman testified in his own case.
Tim Norman cried and denied any involvement with the murder of his nephew.
He talked about how he was a mentor to many children, including his nephew.
However, prosecutors questioned him, catching Tim Norman in a few lies, tracked down flight and phone records, and spoke to other parties who plead guilty in this case.
“He is the architect of this plan, causing, encouraging and aiding this scheme,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Gwendolyn Caroll told the jury.
