Chambers gets maximum sentence for 23rd and Jackson attack

Billy Chambers has been sentenced to 22 months in prison after pleading guilty to attempted assault and hit-and-run stemming from an attack at 23rd and Jackson in June.

As a juvenile, Chambers was one of three people found guilty of the 2008 killing of Ed “Tuba Man” McMichael. On June 23, he ran his car into a female victim’s car after the woman filed a police report against him in reference to an earlier car prowl.

Though prosecutors recommended 18 months as part of his plea agreement, the judge decided to give him the maximum.

From the Seattle Times:

King County Superior Court Judge Joan DuBuque imposed the top of the sentencing range, going beyond the 18-month recommendation of the prosecution and defense.

“But for the grace of God, this could’ve ended up very tragically, and I think we need to protect the community from his behavior,” DuBuque said.

Chambers, 18, will get credit for about four months he has already been in custody.

  1. Pros – He has strike one and will be off the street for a short while.
    Cons – He has two more strikes to gain, which = two more chances at murdering innocent people.
    This sociopath rat needs to be locked up w/ no key.

  2. May the pain and suffering he has caused countless others be served in kind during his brief time in the clinker. For someone who does not know how to be a man when the time calls, maybe being someones b*tch will kickstart the process.

  3. It appears that he’s either stupid or a piss poor criminal. I just hope his time behind bars doesn’t make him a better criminal with better connections. Either way he seems like a lost cause. What other choice do we have as a society to deal with young perpetual law breakers like him?

  4. He’s shown several times that he has no concept of what being a normal, law abiding citizen is. Keep the thug away from the rest of us.

  5. Can’t we all come together and help this young man? His life is so full of hope. Maybe we could elect him as Sheriff of the CD. He can go around stomping the life out of miscrients. Seems like we could find something for him to do.
