An admitted drug dealer today pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for a deadly shooting in Erie in July 2012. Twenty-five year old Teverous Williams was killed.
The defendant, Michael James faces a maximum 5 years in prison for the plea. Plus, an additional 7 years for his conviction of possessing a firearm without a license.
A jury convicted James of the firearms count but could not reach a verdict on a murder charge.
James was scheduled to be re-tried next month. But today's plea ends the prosecution.
