    Exclamation Ladies And Gentlemen Of The Jury, I Present To You....

    I cannot believe what I about to present to you here today....

    Assault Defendant Claims Insanity, Moons Jury

    POSTED: 3:12 p.m. EDT July 17, 2003

    PANAMA CITY, Fla. -- An assault defendant punctuated his insanity defense by loudly hooting "cuckoo-cuckoo" and then dropping his pants to moon the jury.

    Not strange enough? Read more strange news from WFTV.com.

    A pair of bailiffs and two Bay County sheriff's deputies then pounced on Cornell Jackson and dragged him from the courtroom Wednesday with his buttocks exposed as he again shouted "cuckoo-cuckoo" and laughed. The trial continued Thursday.

    Jackson, 29, of Panama City, has claimed insanity in two assault cases. He was convicted in April of aggravated battery and aggravated assault for a box-cutter attack on his then-girlfriend Kisha Smith on Jan. 21, 2000.

    The second trial is for another alleged attack on Smith the next day. Jackson was accused of forcing his way into Smith's home and slashing her again with the box-cutter, this time causing cuts that took about 70 stitches to close.

    Jackson had refused to attend his first trial. Defense lawyer Georgette Beller argued he had a personality disorder that caused him to attack Smith.

    Beller asked for a mistrial after Wednesday's mooning incident. Circuit Judge Michael Overstreet rejected her motion and ordered that Jackson watch the rest of the trial from a holding cell over closed-circuit television.

    Default LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE JURY HAVE YOU REACHED A VERDICT?

    Jul 18, 7:44 AM EDT

    Man Found Guilty After Mooning Jury

    PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) -- Jurors who were mooned by a defendant needed only 30 minutes Thursday to find the man guilty of armed burglary and aggravated battery.

    Cornell Jackson, 29, punctuated his insanity defense by loudly hooting "cuckoo-cuckoo" and then dropping his pants to moon the jury on Wednesday.

    Jackson will be sentenced Aug. 19.

    A pair of bailiffs and two Bay County sheriff's deputies dragged Jackson from the courtroom after he exposed his buttocks during Wednesday's trial proceedings.

    Jackson has claimed insanity in two assault cases.

    He was convicted in April of aggravated battery and aggravated assault for a box-cutter attack on his then-girlfriend Kisha Smith on Jan. 21, 2000.

    The second trial was for another alleged attack on Smith the next day. Jackson was convicted of forcing his way into Smith's home and slashing her again with the box-cutter, this time causing cuts that took about 70 stitches to close.

    Defense lawyer Georgette Beller argued he had a personality disorder that caused him to attack Smith.

    Beller asked for a mistrial after Wednesday's mooning. Circuit Judge Michael Overstreet rejected her motion and ordered that Jackson watch the rest of the trial from a holding cell over closed-circuit television.
