A Niles man is going back to prison after being sentenced in Berrien County.

48-year-old Jamel Rashaune Jackson pleaded guilty to fleeing police and resisting and obstructing police.

It happened in April, when Jackson damaged property worth just under $10,000.

Leader Publications reports that Jackson has 20 prior felony convictions and 39 misdemeanor convictions.

These included convictions for retail fraud, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, and assault with a dangerous weapon.

Now, he is sentenced to concurrent terms of 26 months to 5 years and 14 months to 2 years for the charges.


  1. Holy cow! “Jackson has 20 prior felony convictions and 39 misdemeanor convictions.”

    Sure! Let him out to commit more crimes…keep his butt in there this time.
