Sullivan DA accepts guilty plea after Monticello shooting


MONTICELLO – Sullivan County District Attorney Meagan Galligan announced that a 20-year-old Liberty resident has entered a guilty plea on a felony weapons charge.  The charges were the result of a June 2021 fight and shots fired in Monticello.


Jajuan Dixon pled guilty to felony criminal possession of a weapon on Thursday in Sullivan County Court.  During his plea, Dixon admitted that he possessed a loaded and operable .38 caliber revolver on Broadway in the Village of Monticello last summer. 


The weapon was discovered in Dixon’s possession when Monticello police responded to a 911 report of shots fired on June 25, 2021. Two additional men, Joseph Robinson, 20, of Ellenville, and Adrian Davis, 21, of Liberty, pled guilty to felony criminal possession of a weapon, admitting that they knowingly accompanied Dixon and the gun inside of a motor vehicle that day. The pleas came immediately before their hearings were scheduled. 


“These defendants’ illegal gun possession endangered those who traveled along Broadway, undermined lawful gun ownership, and will not be tolerated in Sullivan County,” Galligan said. 


Dixon remains incarcerated in the Sullivan County Jail pending sentencing, which is scheduled for April 7. Robinson and Davis posted $50,000 bond and are additionally supervised by the Sullivan County Probation Department pending sentencing.
