A Powhatan man who survived being stabbed in the head is now angry because one of the men charged in the attack was recently found not guilty. Norris Goode Jr. is speaking out for the first time.

Last week, a Powhatan judge found Jesse Ray Moore, of Jetersville, not guilty in the stabbing of another man. His younger brother, Jacob Moore of Powhatan, has also been indicted in the crime and is awaiting trial.

But the victim is more than upset over the outcome.

"I cannot live with being treated like this by the justice system I trusted," said Goode. "It's kind of scary knowing that gentleman, well that man, is walking amongst us still."

In April 2016, Goode said he had permission to fish on this pond with a friend on Huguenot Springs Road. According to court records, the Moore brothers thought the men were trespassing. Jacob Moore was living in a rental on the property.

There is a disagreement between Goode and the brothers as to who started the fight. But police say there was a fight involving all three men.
