By Space Coast Daily // July 29, 2022
BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Reginald Little Jr. has pleaded guilty to Second-Degree Murder of Lemonta Wynn and Attempted Robbery that happened back on October of 2018.
Reginald Little Jr., 29, entered a plea of guilty to the offenses of Second-Degree Murder and Attempted Robbery with a Firearm for his role in the August 2018 homicide of Lemonta Wynn, 27, at a residence on Lipscomb Street in Palm Bay.
Little was sentenced on July 28, 2022, by Judge Charles Crawford to 20-years and 15-years in state prison for the Murder and Attempted Robbery charges respectively.
The sentences will be served concurrently.
In exchange for the plea, prosecutors waived the First-Degree Felony Murder charge Little was indicted on in October of 2018.
Stalled plea negotiations resumed after efforts to select a jury for trial were underway. In this instance the testimony and availability of key witnesses, essential to proving the defendant’s guilt at trial were brought into question.
The following statement was issued after the sentencing:
“Our dedicated prosecutors work hard on behalf of victims and aggressively prosecute these cases. Our office always proceeds on a good faith belief there is sufficient evidence to prevail at trial with the charged offenses.
When evidence or witness testimony no longer supports that belief, we are legally and ethically obligated to consider alternative resolutions.
We place great weight on the desire of the victims and their families under these circumstances. It includes weighing the continuation of the case and an uncertain trial outcome, against their need for closure with a known and acceptable resolution,” said the State Attorney’s office.
As a result, prosecutors received input from Wynn family members and our law enforcement partners prior to reaching an agreement in this case.
The defendant accepting responsibility for his actions by entering a plea of guilty to Second Degree Murder and Attempted Robbery with a Firearm represents their desire, and ours, for justice on behalf of Lemonta Wynn. It also seeks to protect the community by ensuring that Reginald Little Jr. will serve the next twenty years of his life in state prison.”
Little was given credit for 1,388 days already served and ordered to pay court costs totally $527 dollars.
