Jackson was found guilty in Broome County Court of the violent felony for illegally entering the room at the motel in the Town of Kirkwood and stealing property from a person inside on March 28 of 2020.

District Attorney Michael Korchak says Jackson is no stranger to the criminal justice system, “committing his first violent felony in 1993 in Brooklyn.”  Korchak says his office will request a sentence that reflects “Jackson’s lifetime of disregard for the rule of law.”

Sentencing is scheduled for August 8.
