A Baldwin man whose extensive history with the justice system includes two not guilty verdicts on homicide charges now faces potential imprisonment on a probation violation.
Jason Korey, 31, was the subject of a search by U.S. Probation Office agents on April 17, according to court documents filed today. The petition for a hearing on his probation status indicates that his Revo Road home contained a .40-caliber Beretta pistol, more than 100 rounds of ammunition of various types, a machete and two folding knives.
He can't have weapons because he was convicted of possession of an unregistered firearm and possession of a firearm by a drug addict.
In 2000, he was found not guilty of the murder of William Kuhn III, 24, and he was also acquitted in the earlier killing of Joseph Brucker, 17.
A federal judge at one point sentenced him to nearly 33 years in prison, but following a successful appeal that sentence was reduced to 33 months.
