Layota D Jackson....there is a name I have seen in the Police Blotter numerous times over the last several years. She is in the 5% class that causes 95% of the problems in Batavia.

Yep, one of Batavia's finest! The Daily had an article with more info than Howard supplied that I'm still shaking my head over. Here's what the Daily posted (copied & pasted directly from the article)...
Jackson was involved in a large fight at Lewis Place and State Street in July 2012. She was charged with resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration, the fifth time in three years that Jackson had been charged with fighting with police. The next morning Jackson was charged with felony assault after she punched a corrections officer in the face. All the charges against Jackson were reduced in a plea deal in City Court, a deal that allowed Jackson to plead guilty to a single misdemeanor count of third-degree assault. She was sentenced on Nov. 7 to one year in jail, the maximum. She was released on March 29.
I'm normally pretty good with numbers, so somebody needs to tell me what I'm missing here with that 1 year sentence... she was sent to jail on 11/7 and released on 3/29. I keep coming up with about a week short of 5 months. I'm having a REAL hard time believing she was released early because of good behavior... but hey... this is how our judicial system works. One of the biggest trouble makers in the area gets a major plea deal with a bunch of charges rolled into one and most likely we paid for her attorney, and then she serves less than half of the sentence. Why do we wonder why this country is in the shape it's in?
Just a guess. She got credit for any jail time prior to conviction. And if she did behave in jail, she got 1/3 off for good time credit.
In 2011 she was arrested for stealing $13 worth of merchandise from dollar general... Batavia's finest she is.
"stealing $13 worth of merchandise from dollar general"?
That would be...uh,....let's see......what? 3-4 carts-full?
