DETROIT, MI – Darius Jackson, the man charged in connection with the February 26th, 2018, sexual assault and armed robbery of a woman in the Detroit Opera House garage was scheduled to be sentenced today before Judge Kelly Ramsey.
The sentencing agreement is now in jeopardy and Jackson may be headed to trial.
Darius Jackson was to be formally sentenced for the Armed Robbery with a 16 to 30 year sentence agreement, Assault with Intent to Commit Criminal Sexual Conduct, with a four to ten year sentence and two years consecutive on the Felony Firearm charge, pursuant to a sentence agreement. He would spend 16 to 30years in the Michigan Department of Corrections.
In return for the July 5th, 2018 plea and sentence agreement, the Kidnapping, Criminal Sexual Conduct Second Degree, Assault with Intent to Do Great Bodily Harm and Felonious Assault charges were to be dismissed.
The defense asked the court to change the term of years on the Armed Robbery to 8 years. The prosecution argued that if the defendant did not want to honor the sentence agreement, the only option under the law is to proceed to trial on all of the charges.
Judge Ramsey indicated that she would have a decision on Monday, July 23, 2018 at 9:00 a.m.
