CINCINNATI (AP) — Two men pleaded guilty Monday to charges in connection with an armed break-in at the suburban Cincinnati home of a federal judge in December.
Darrell Kinney, 21, of Evanston, and Terry Jackson Jr., 21, of Mount Airy, pleaded guilty to charges including aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and kidnapping, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported (http://cin.ci/1TN3fZ8 ). Jackson also pleaded guilty to felony assault and to taking part in three similar November 2015 robberies.
Kinney, Jackson and another man followed Judge Susan Dlott and her husband home after seeing the luxury car they were driving, Hamilton County Assistant Prosecutor Gus Leon said. The men drove away after watching the couple go into their 27,000-square-foot Indian Hill house and returned several hours later, kicking in a basement door and stealing several items.
The men then approached the couple in their bedroom, Leon said, two with handguns and the third with a stun gun. They held the couple at gunpoint for up to 40 minutes, “in an effort to make them give up more property.”
Leon said Jackson later pushed the judge’s husband, former attorney Stanley Chesley, down a small flight of steps, leaving him with cracked vertebrae, broken bones and a concussion.
Kinney must serve at least 18 years in prison and Jackson must serve at least 21 years. Both are expected to be sentenced on March 29 in a Hamilton County court.
The third man — Demetrius Williams, 21, of Mount Airy — is proceeding to trial.
