Friend of Charleston Church Murderer Take a Plea Deal

25 Apr

No surprise here that the guy is copping a plea, in that the case is pretty strong to lock him up for a long while…

Joey Meek has endured a host of very traumatic events that have him contemplating his future as never before. In recent weeks he lost a friend to suicide and then he went through the horrific Dylann Roof church killing tragedy (Roof was a pal and house guest). On top of that the family suffered a robbery at their trailer and very recently an angry gunman terrorized everyone in the trailer. When Joey opens up about personal issues (which is rare) he manages to slink in a dark corner of the room and withdraw. We spend time in the trailer where Kim Konzny and her three sons sometimes shared with friend Dylann Roof, the man who killed nine people at a Charleston church. (Michael S.

Friend of accused Charleston church gunman will plead guilty

Joey Meek, a friend of the man accused of killing nine parishioners in Charleston, S.C., last year, intends to plead guilty to two charges related to the massacre, according to a court document filed Monday.

Meek was indicted in September on counts of making false statements to the FBI and “misprision of a felony,” which meant that he allegedly concealed his knowledge of the crimes. He had pleaded not guilty to these counts, which carry up to eight years in prison.

According to a plea agreement dated last week and filed in federal court on Monday, federal prosecutors and Meek’s attorney agreed that he will instead plead guilty to both counts. The agreement also states that Meek will be “fully truthful and forthright” with law enforcement groups and that, if he is asked for a testimony, he will be required to testify “before any grand juries and at any trials or other proceedings.” If Meek cooperates and is help is deemed “substantial,” authorities will seek to have his sentence reduced.

An attorney for Meek and prosecutors were not immediately available to comment.

Meek’s jury trial had been scheduled for June 27, according to court records. He is now scheduled to have a change of plea hearing on Friday afternoon….Read The Rest Here

    I knew this guy’s mouth was going to get him into trouble and to think Roof’s trial has been postponed until January.

    Ha,ha,ha!!

      I think the offer of 8 years being the brother’s “bitch” in gen pop vs 2-5 in Club Fed definitely made him squeal.
