30A 40-year-old Montegut man charged with attempted murder rejected the state’s plea offer today because he didn’t feel the sentence was long enough.

Steven Walcott Jr., of 128 St. Matt St., is being held without bond at the jail following his arrest in May 2016 in the wake of a shooting in the 800 block of Norman Street that left a 46-year-old man in critical condition, authorities said.

Prosecutors offered Walcott a 20-year plea agreement, but Walcott turned down the offer and demanded 30.

Dressed in a red jail-issued jumpsuit and seated in a wheelchair, Walcott also asked to represent himself in the case even though the court had appointed public defender Michael Billiot as his attorney.  More
