IS THIS A REPOST ?

WHAT DO YOU THINK ?




By Tom Jones

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. —

A 14-year-old girl has plead guilty to stabbing her 2-year-old sister to death.

Ty'aisa Jackson was sentenced to 12 years to serve, eight behind bars, for the November 2012 murder of Sasha Ray.

Channel 2's Tom Jones was the only reporter in court when the judge sentenced the teen.

"How do you plead to these charges? Guilty or not guilty?" DeKalb County Assistant District Attorney Darius Pattillo asked the baby-faced Jackson.

"Guilty," she said, barely above a whisper.

That's when Ty'aisa Jackson's mother, also Sasha Ray's mother, stormed out of the courtroom in tears. Jackson was 13 when she told police Sasha Ray disappeared from their home near Decatur.

She had been babysitting Sasha Ray and three other small siblings. Jackson admitted she killed Sasha Ray when her body was found in the backyard.

"We know from the Medical Examiner's report the victim had injuries to her heart, her lung her liver and stomach," Pattillo explained, saying Jackson used a kitchen knife in the attack.

Prosecutors asked for a 20 year sentence to serve 10 behind bars at what began as a pretrial hearing. The D.A.'s office pointed to the brutal nature of the crime.

"Not only was she stabbed multiple times but there was an attempt to hide the murder," Chief Assistant District Attorney Nicole Golden said.

Jackson's defense attorneys asked for a five-year sentence.

Melanie Williams pointed to a mental health professional's conclusion that Jackson could be rehabilitated.

"He did believe that Ty'aisa actions were the result of a brief mental break," public defender Melanie Williams said

Judge Gregory Adams pointed out a child's life had been lost.

"I will sentence her to 12 years to serve 8 years in custody," he said from the bench.

After court, Jackson's stepfather--Sasha Ray's biological father--said he still loves her.

"Yes I do still love you, Ty'aisa," Shelton Ray said.

Shelton Ray wondered if his family put too much pressure on her. That's why he thinks this ordeal is partly his fault.

"Sometimes I think about was it something that I didn't do. Something more that I could have done," he said.

He urged parents to watch their kids and talk to them to make sure they're not overwhelmed. He sent a message to his stepdaughter, telling her to keep her head up, be strong, keep reading and stay positive while she serves her sentence.

Jackson will get credit for the year she has served. She will have to serve four years probation once she gets out.

She had been babysitting Sasha Ray and three other small siblings. A 12 year old babysitting four children at once??? Yes they put entirely too much responsibility on this child. I do hope she can be rehabilitated. 

Did she say why she did it? This is so sad all around.

Not from what i've read, i saw this on FB yesterday and i just can't stop thinking about her. I'm six years older than my only younger sibling and my mother never left me to "babysit" for more than a a few hrs, and not until i was around 14. I'd never leave a teenager with my 3yo, im wary of leaving her with adult relatives.

She was too young to care for all those children.

I think there is some history of abuse ... such that it got so bad that this 12 year old had to flip out like that.

Look at the family.

You think she should serve less than eight years?

She needs psychological help. The parents need to be charged, another article says the children were 5, 4, 3 and 2. She shouldn't have been left to watch any of them. Her defense and her mother failed her.

not really im not sure if i care about the time.  people serve more or less time for killing people all the time.  my brothers friend stabbed his brother, pushed him out the door and let bleed to death.  he was  back home by 18. 

i do care about what type of defense and the advice they receive.
