Terry Kennedy’s Latest Mugshot Released Following 5-Year Jail Sentence
Former Baker skateboards' professional skateboarder Terry Kennedy appeared grim and exhausted in a new mugshot released after being acquitted of murder and received a five-year jail sentence for aggravated battery.
The incident dates back to July 2020, when Kennedy was involved in a physical altercation with his close friend Josiah Kassuhan outside a motel in Illinois. Kassuhan suffered severe injuries and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Kennedy was initially charged with murder, but the charge was dropped as he was found guilty of assault and sentenced to five years instead.
Following the trial, Kennedy was found guilty of aggravated battery, a Class 3 felony in Illinois. He was sentenced to 5 years, with credit for time served. This means that he will be eligible for release in 2028.
It remains to be seen how Kennedy's legal troubles will impact his career and personal life in the long run. However, the incident has had a significant impact on both him and the skateboarding community as a whole.
