City man gets 6-year prison term for double homicide in 2011

Published: Wed, September 5, 2012 @ 2:15 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A 24-year-old Youngstown man will spend the next six years in prison for a double homicide on the city’s North Side last year.

Quentin Jones had originally been charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of Jasmon Reeder, 19, of Superior Street, and Oscar Teague, 56, of Wirt Avenue in August 2011, but he entered a plea agreement with prosecutors where he pleaded guilty to two counts of voluntary manslaughter.

Jones appeared today before Judge John Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court for sentencing.

Haven't people gone to jail for longer than that for a few DUI's?

What it means is the prosecutors office did not do their job well enough so THEY had to accept the plea deal. We the people need to remember these things come November.

Come on down to Crazy Paul Gain's plea deal emporium. He has the best deals to get you off no matter how heinous your crime.

Obviously Gaines' office just wants to get cases through the system and not spend time actually prosecuting.

This is complete bull. I've never in my life heard of someone getting 6 years for killing two people. The prosecutor needs to be thrown out and recalled point blank

You get 3 years a killing, yet the IHOP robber gets four years. I guess depopulating is good now.

A sad reflection upon our society...I'm sure Quentin Jones will hone his criminal skills in prison and be released early for "good behavior" to once again wreak havoc in our city.

SHAMEFUL! This is not justice! ...And he'll probably get credit toward his insufficient sentence for the time he's already served in the county jail!
