White people save lives, black people end lives.
Always has been the case, always will be the case.
A Camden man has pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter for punching a man on an Atlantic City street in 2017 who later died from head trauma.
Johnny Morgan, 34, agreed to a plea with the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office in which he’ll be sentenced to 15 years in prison, and have to serve over 12 years before he’s eligible for parole, the office announced.
On Nov. 3, 2017, Morgan and Andrew “AJ” McGarrigel, 53, of Atlantic City got into an altercation in the area of North Virginia Ave in which Morgan punched McGarrigel once in the head.
He never regained consciousness, and died from his injuries later that month at a local hospital.
McGarrigel was a lifeguard for the Atlantic City Beach Patrol, and a native of Brigantine.
Morgan will officially be sentenced in April, the prosecutor’s office said.
