Berkshire DA’s Office secures guilty conviction of man who drove over woman

The Office also secured the conviction of a Pittsfield man for illegal possession of a firearm and receiving stolen property; and the indictment of Edward Jennings on a murder charge related to the shooting death of Lemond Grady.

PITTSFIELD — The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office secured the guilty conviction of a man who drove over a Pittsfield woman, causing her significant long-term injuries and hospitalizing her.

Alfredo Osorio, 27, of Pittsfield, pled guilty to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injuries and leaving the scene of personal injury.

In an unagreed plea on Monday, Judge John Agostini sentenced Osorio to serve three to five years in state prison on the charges. The Commonwealth requested three-and-a-half to five years, while Defense Counsel requested 18 months at the Berkshire County House of Correction.

On September 4, 2018, Osorio got in an argument with the victim while driving her to a Pecks Road home. After exiting the vehicle, Osorio drove over the victim and left the scene. The victim suffered significant injuries that required a life flight to Albany Medical Center, where she spent a week in critical care and now continues to suffer from the injuries.

The Office also secured the conviction of a Pittsfield man for illegal possession of a firearm and receiving stolen property.

David Moody, 28, pled guilty to the charges in an agreed plea on Monday. Judge John Agostini approved the agreement, which sentences Moody to serve two-and-a-half to three-and-a-half years in state prison.

The Pittsfield Police Department responded to a ShotSpotter activation on April 30, 2020 on Springside Avenue. Officers located a vehicle matching the description less than a mile away. Moody was in the vehicle and Police discovered an illegal firearm.

District Attorney Andrea Harrington thanked the Pittsfield Police Department for their work on these cases. “I especially would like to thank the victim in the Osorio case for her amazing victim impact statement detailing how much this incident changed her life. Victim witness impact statements are one of the most important rights of a victim or family member of crime.”

The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office also secured the indictment of Edward Jennings, 34, of Pittsfield on a murder charge related to the shooting death of Lemond Grady.

Jennings is accused of shooting Grady on North Street in Pittsfield on April 20. Berkshire Superior Court will arraign Jennings on Aug. 5.
