Convicted Albany murderer reflects on what he would tell younger self
Jaush’ir Weaver, 25, was caught on a street camera firing a gun at the corner of Lark Street and Sheridan Avenue in May 2015. Weaver was just 16 years old at the time.
The shooting was in retaliation for another death. However, the man killed was an innocent bystander. His name was Courtney Yates, who was a young father of six children.
Prominent Albany attorney Lee Kindlon represented Weaver during the first trial eight years ago. Weaver is the youngest murder defendant Kindlon has ever represented, he said.
Kindlon also pointed out the police officer who arrested Kindlon was his Pop Warner coach at one point.
NewsChannel 13’s Subrina Dhammi recently interviewed Weaver, as he serves time in prison.
