A Chicago man convicted of shooting to death an 8-year-old girl and wounding her cousin has been sentenced to 75 years in prison.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported Steshawn Brisco gave a thumbs-up Tuesday as he was being led away after being sentenced by Cook County Circuit Judge Stanley Sacks. The judge said that with the lengthy sentence, the 20-year-old Brisco will never again walk Chicago’s streets.
Tanaja Stokes and 7-year-old Ariana Jones were jumping rope on Aug. 10, 2010, when Brisco and co-defendant Marcus Cocroft rode up on their bicycles and began shooting at a group of teens.
Sachs noted Brisco and Cocroft boasted about the shooting, pointing out witnesses testified the pair showed no concern about the girls.
Cocroft was sentenced in November to 55 years in prison.Copyright © 2014 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
