Last year Martin Phillip Jackson pleaded guilty to abducting a woman and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. He was freed on probation after three months.
But now Jackson faces charges that he posed as a cabdriver and again kidnapped a woman Saturday, punching and then choking her when she screamed.
"I don't think anyone foresaw a second incident," Kamenish (Jackson's lawyer) said. "I was very surprised."
Not anyone? The last victim, Heather Ridgley and her family asked Judge Martin McDonald and former Jefferson Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Ricarda Rich not to let Jackson out early.
"We knew it was going to happen again," said Mary Ridgley, Heather's grandmother. "We knew it was just a matter of time."
With creeps like this getting out after three months it's no wonder Paris Hilton thinks that her 45 day sentence is too harsh.Posted by marybeth at May 15, 2007 10:01 AM News
