IN THE MURDER CASE OF JULIAN LEWIS
Ex-Georgia State Patrol Trooper Granted $100,000 Bond
The family of Julian Lewis, the unarmed man shot and killed by GSP trooper Jacob Gordon Thompson on August 7, will address media regarding the $100,000 bond that was issued today for Thompson.
Lewis, 60, was driving down a rural road in Screven County the evening of August 7 when he was followed by GSP trooper Thompson for allegedly having a faulty tail light. Thompson engaged in a low-speed pursuit of Lewis and used a PIT maneuver which resulted in Lewis's car crashing into a ditch.
Less than two seconds after Thompson got out of his patrol vehicle, he shot into Lewis' vehicle, striking him in the head and killing him. Lewis was unarmed.
Thompson was fired and charged with felony murder and aggravated assault on August 14. The family of Julian Lewis is represented by attorneys Mawuli Davis and Francys Johnson of Davis Bozeman Johnson Law.
