Charges reduced in Walker case

By David Knopf/Richmond News

An amended petition was filed June 19 reducing a charge against Landon Walker, the former Richmond High School running back who had faced an A Felony for allegedly selling drugs near subsidized government housing.

Walker’s next court hearing is Tuesday at 8:30 a.m.

His reduced charge, a B Felony, maintains the alleged possession with intent to sell, but drops the wording that Walker’s apartment at 200 S. Camden St. was within 1,000 feet of public housing units.

The range of punishment for the B Felony is a minimum of five years and a maximum of 15. If convicted, the A Felony would have put Walker in prison for no fewer than 10 years and no more than 30.

He is also charged with three C Felonies, a D Felony, an Unclassified Felony and several misdemeanors stemming from a May 22 incident in which Walker allegedly shot three men with a BB gun. He fled, and was later found in possession of marijuana, a digital scale and BB gun-related items.

None of the victims was seriously injured.
