A 17-year-old Centralia man standing trial as an adult has pleaded guilty to one of two charges pending against him in connection with a shooting incident on a northeast side Centralia street in June.
Christopher Jamison of Kerr Street admitted to a charge of aggravated discharge of a firearm in exchange for a charge of attempted first-degree murder being dropped. He was sentenced to four years probation, given credit for 167 days served in jail, abstain from drugs and alcohol, and have no contact with the victim Davion Martin.
Testimony during an earlier court hearing indicated Jamison had fired an estimated 10 to 15 shots at Martin near the Jackson and Kell Street intersection as Martin tried to flee the area in his vehicle. Martin was not injured in the incident.
When getting Jamison certified to stand trial as an adult, State’s Attorney Bill Milner had noted his extensive prior record of violent crime and failing to complete the programs designed to help him in the juvenile department of corrections.
