Jackson gets 90-years-to-life in YSU shooting



Published: Thu, December 13, 2012 @ 2:57 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Jamelle Jackson — one of three men charged in connection with the shooting near the campus of Youngstown State University that killed one student and injured 10 others — was sentenced to at least 90 years in prison today.

Jackson, 20, of West Boston Avenue; Mark Jones, 26, of South Meridian Road; and Demetrius Wright, 22, of West Avondale Avenue appeared for sentencing this afternoon before Judge John M. Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court on charges related to the murder of Jamail Johnson and injuring 10 other people at an off-campus party in 2011.

Jackson was convicted of murder and 10 counts of felonious assault after a trial in Summit County this month. Jones pleaded guilty to identical charges last month in a plea deal with prosecutors and Wright pleaded guilty to carrying concealed weapons and tampering with evidence.

Jackson will spend the next 90 years-to-life in prison. Jones will spend the next 10 years behind bars and Wright was sentenced to three years probation.
