Reports Refute Prior Claims, Judge Allegeldy Labeled Junior’s Mom As “Hysterical” Not “Monstrous”
Outlets are now updating their report about a judge calling Junior Feliz Guzman’s mom “monsterous.” Instead, the NY Post reports that the judge said she was “hysterical” as they played the CCTV of her son’s final moments.
The mother of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz was labeled “hysterical” by a Bronx judge on Thursday after she was restrained and escorted out of court by police because she began screaming when she witnessed her son’s final moments.
Pix 11 reports that Leandra Feliz, the mother of murdered Bronx teen Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz, began shaking and screaming when the court presented gruesome CCTV footage of her son’s slaying last summer.
The video showed a fatally wounded Junior standing alone on the sidewalk, holding his neck wound after being turned away from the bodega twice.
“No, no, no!” His mother began screaming.
According to the NY post, Bronx Supreme Court Judge Robert Neary said the court had to break for lunch “because someone became rather hysterical, demonstrably and screamed.”
Officers then tried to console Leandra before taking her out of the courtroom. They also told witnesses in the hallway outside to refrain from filming as it was a “medical emergency.”
A friend of Feliz later told The NY Post that, “She needs medical assistance right now. She needs to be at ease and calm down.”
She was checked by EMT’s, but did not need to be taken to hospital.
Testimony in Junior’s murder will continue on Thursday afternoon.
