2 plead guilty to attacking Richmond mailman in Mosby Court

The Richmond man and woman who pled guilty this week to assaulting a mailman in Mosby Court are each facing up to 8 years in prison, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of VA (EDVA) said.

The incident occurred on May 22, 2023. It was about 8:40 p.m. and 21-year-old Jumeka Jones was outside on the 1900 block of Accommodation Street in Richmond with her dog unleashed while a mail carrier, identified only as J.P., was delivering mail, the court documents show.

J.P., fearing for his safety, asked Jones to contain the dog, which she admitted that she declined to do. J.P sprayed dog repellant at the dog, which led to an argument between him and Jones, she acknowledged in the court documents.

Quintin Morris, a 31-year-old, got involved. Court documents show he admitted that he “adopted a fighting stance,” and that led to a physical altercation between the two men.

Jones jumped into the fight, which involved Morris and Jones wrestling J.P. to the ground. Both defendants admitted that Morris punched the mailman and Jones stomped him. Based on the court documents, the assault occurred for approximately 1 minute. J.P. was left with a sprained shoulder and neck as well as a cut face.

As a U.S. Postal worker engaged in the duty of delivering the mail, the court documents note that J.P. was considered a federal officer at the time.

Morris pleaded guilty today. Jones pleaded guilty yesterday, January 3. Both are scheduled to be sentenced on April 16.
