Perez Green’s Sentencing rescheduled

The man who pleaded guilty to manslaughter on May 5, and was scheduled to be sentenced on June 15 had his sentencing rescheduled.

Judge Jose Lopez said there were some setbacks and he had not been able to prepare for the case.

According to charging documents, Green admitted to beating James Harling because the victim teased him about a haircut. Green was initially charged with murder, but pled to a lesser charge in exchange for a plea deal.

Family and friends appeared to be present and seemed to be upset at the judge’s decision.

Sentencing for Green is now set to take place on June 30 at 11:00 a.m.
