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.
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.
