DETROIT, MI – Virgil Smith, the former state senator who entered into a 2016 plea agreement after a shooting incident involving his ex-wife was granted the motion to set aside his former plea to Malicious Destruction of Property and set a $1000 personal bond ordering no contact with the complainant.
Virgil Smith, 36-years-old, is accused of firing as many as ten shots at ex-wife’s parked Mercedes-Benz during a domestic dispute early Mother’s Day morning in 2015.
Anistia Thomas stated that she had resumed an intimate relationship with Smith but found him with a naked woman when she arrived at his home after midnight on May 10th.
Thomas says Smith punched her and pushed her out the door before firing shots, destroying the $35,000 car.
The original felony charges of: Malicious Destruction of Property; Felonious Assault: and Felony Firearm and misdemeanor Domestic Violence were reinstated. The Final Conference is scheduled on December 14, 2018, and the jury trial is scheduled on March 4, 2019, both at 8:30 a.m.
