To audible gasps and tears from Josh Deraitus’ family, a King County Superior Court judge found Justin McLeod not guilty Monday of all charges related to a road-rage shooting in Federal Way two years ago that cost Deraitus his left eye. “The issue of this case and the evidence that must be viewed through the lens of the law is identity,” Judge Hollis Hill said in her decision. “Does the admissable evidence establish the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt? Or does the admissable evidence leave room for one, or several reasonable doubts of the truth of the charge that this man, Justin McLeod committed this crime?” Prosecutors accused McLeod of shooting Deraitus in a road-rage incident at South 304th Street and Military Road South in Federal Way on Jan. 2, 2010.
