Villa Park Man Sentenced to 25 Years in Naperville Murder

Tyrell Jackson entered a guilty plea this past week to a charge of murder with the strong probability of killing or injuring, according to CBS2 Chicago.

A 26-year-old Villa Park man was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to a charge of murder with the strong probability of killing or injuring, according to CBS2 Chicago. 

The charge was amended Monday for Tyrell Jackson from a first-degree murder charge, which could have carried a maximum prison sentence of 70 years in prison, according to the article. 

Police said Jackson was one of four men involved in the 2008 murder of John D. Rosales who was shot to death following a "drug-related invasion" at his townhouse at 2511 Sherman Drive in Naperville, according to CBS2 Chicago. 

Jackson had been convicted of first-degree murder in August 2010 but in October 2013, the Illinois Appellate Court overturned the conviction ruling Jackson's confession should have been suppressed by the Will County judge in his case, according to the Naperville Sun. 

Jackson's case was slated to be retried starting this past week before Jackson entered a guilty plea to the amended murder charge, according to the article. 

The three other men charged in the slaying, Reginald Chandler-Martin, 27, Courtney Mayes, 26, and Cherrod Moore, 33, all of Aurora, have been convicted of murder in the case and sentenced to prison, according to the Naperville Sun.

Only 25 years! What a joke the court system is becoming! It should've been life! The scum bag is only getting 11 years more than Blagojevich who didn't murder anyone! What a joke!
