A suspect in two homicides was convicted of unrelated robbery and burglary charges Wednesday and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Andre Jackson, 32, stood trial this week in Richmond County Superior Court. Charges of murder are still pending.

The armed robbery and burglary occurred June 28, 2010, the same day sheriff investigators believe L.V. Wilson III, 38, was killed at his home at 1926 Haynie Dr.

Jackson is also accused of killing Jquanda Johnson, 27, whose body was found inside her 825 Spruce St. apartment on July 2, 2010. Investigators believe she was killed because she witnessed Wilson’s slaying.

Jackson had prior convictions for drugs and theft. Prosecutors — Assistant District Attorneys Hank Syms and Natalie Paine — filed a recidivist notice that requires a maximum prison term without the possiblity of parole.

Jackson had prior convictions for drugs and theft.

Yet a liberal justice system had him walking the streets...no more liberal sentences...no more time off for good behavior....the system is broke!

He was in custody and had been since September 2010. NOW he will not he is not eligible to be released forever. I would say the system worked.

I propose the following new policy

ALL fines, confiscated cash and property going forward, are to be used to fund increased jail/prison capacity, and build a new 5,000 cell LIFE NO PAROLE prison located in the middle of a remote area or a swamp.

Maybe this increase in jail/prison space availability will eliminate the idea in some judges minds we can't put EVERY physically dangerous criminal in prison and throw the away the key.

BTW: WE need to quit locking up non-dangerous criminals, place them on house/work arrest, require electronic monitoring. Why lock up any person with a job and kids for a non-dangerous crime, and place the family on Welfare and government assistance?

Assign them to INSIDE, bedroom specific, with NO TV/computer/cell phone House arrest for all but 9 hours a day allowing them to get to and from work. If they don't have a job, assign them one cleaning up, or working for the state/county 8 hours a day.

BUT, lock up these walking animals and street monsters

LIBERAL JUDGES
Unpublished

The main problem with our justice system is that too many liberal judges sit on the bench. Some of the recent cases where people committing violent crimes were afforded 1st offender consideration speaks to that issue. It's time to hold the judges and prosecutor responsible for the constant plea bargaining and light sentences. It's time to say enough is enough and throw them out. It's time to get tough with the thugs, rapists and serial thieves that are victimizing our society.

should become everyone's "[filtered word]" for as long as this piece of scum breathes my air. If the punk did this in Saudia Arabia or the Middle East, he would be referred to in the past tense. All of America's bleeding hearts should have to house the monsters they so vigorously want to salvage.

JUSTICE

The Trial of Andre Jackson on armed robbery was a travesty, I couldn't believe how the D.A USED INNUENDOS AND CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE TO GET A CONVICTION, I KNOW THERE WILL BE AN IMMEDIATE APPEAL, THE TRIAL SHOULD HAVE BEEN MOVED TO ANOTHER COUNTY, BECAUSE OF ALL THE PRE-TRIAL MEDIA COVERAGE ABOUT HIS PAST.
