Thomas

Thirty-nine-year-old Dorian Marshall was sentenced to 40 years in prison today for the 2017 murder of 20-year-old Xavier Thomas.

Marshall, Jason Millette and Shalom Bailey were jointly tried for Thomas’ murder last year.

However, though the jury found Marshall guilty of the offence they could not decide on verdicts for Millette or Bailey.

The judge, who said he believed the offence warranted 60 years’ imprisonment, began with a starting sentence of 45 years.

Before arriving at the final sentence, the judge considered the defendant’s “relatively young” age and his prospects for rehabilitation.

Consideration was also given to the impact the sentence would have on the children of the father of 6.

Thomas was shot and killed when the occupants of a vehicle opened fire on a restaurant in Cedar Grove where she and others had gathered on the night of August 18, 2017.

  1. These guys are known criminals with all the shooting they are allegedly tied to and they are getting reduced sentencing? The western hemisphere are getting to lenient on crimes. After these individuals commit their crimes there are certain groups who wants to advocate for them and their punishments. What about the sometimes innocent victims and their families? Now you have judges who are taking into consideration their interaction with their kids? What kind of example they can be for their kids?

  2. Congrats to the jury for giving Dorian what was due to him. At least he didn’t end up like Ten Pound. 40 years to contemplate life. Good luck. Jah guide.

  3. Once you premeditate a murder and found guilty for a crime like this, you should stay in jail until you are of no use for yourself and the community

  4. Cousin, Xavier Thomas may your soul continued to rest in peace. It may not be the justice I know that I was looking for but it is over how. I was looking for him to get the hang-rope or life in prison. I hope that he find salvation incarceration.
