Ex-con sentenced to 10 years for robbery, assault


A Jessup man who previously served about four months in jail for fatally stabbing his brother has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for the October 1994 robbery of a Jessup service station.

Johnny Lee Mouzon, 44, was sentenced Tuesday by Howard Circuit Judge Raymond Kane Jr. Mouzon was convicted in August of robbing Gallagher's Amoco Station on U.S. 1 and assaulting a clerk.

It was the first of three cases against Mouzon. He also is charged in a June 30, 1994, armed robbery at the Red Roof Inn in Jessup and in the July 4, 1994, stabbing of a man on U.S. 1 in Jessup.

A trial has been scheduled for Jan. 3 in those two cases.

Mouzon's previous criminal record includes a manslaughter conviction in the fatal stabbing of his older brother, Joel Louis Mouzon of Jessup, in 1991. He served about four months in jail and was released.

Prosecutors who handled that case say they pursued a plea agreement at the urging of Mouzon's family, who said they did not want him to spend any more time in jail.
