FRASER — On July 27, a Macomb County jury convicted Jeffery Clark on all charges including first degree murder after a two day jury trial.

Clark, a 33-year-old Detroit man, was convicted of chasing down Jerray Robertson in an apartment complex parking lot in Fraser and gunning him down on July 4, 2022.

Clark was found guilty of one count of first-degree premeditated murder, which carries a mandatory life sentence without the chance of parole; one count of felon in possession of a firearm, which can carry up to a 5-year sentence; and two counts of felony firearm, which can carry up to a two-year sentence.

The jury returned a guilty verdict on all counts in 45 minutes before Macomb County Circuit Court Judge Diane Druzinski.

“Thank you to the jury who quickly came back with a guilty verdict on all charges,” Macomb County Prosecutor Peter J. Lucido said in a press release. “I hope this verdict helps the family of the victim begin to find closure, knowing the defendant was convicted of this heinous crime.”

Clark will be sentenced in front of Judge Druzinski on Tuesday, Sept. 19, at 8:30 am.

“This is a sad situation for all parties involved,” said Clark’s attorney, Steven Scharg. “I’m sure he will be seeking an appeal in this matter.”
