MAYVILLE –Two men accused in two separate shootings were each sentenced to 10 years in prison and five years of post-release supervision this week after pleading guilty to charges of first degree assault in Chautauqua County Court.
Trenton Grant, 22, of Jamestown originally was charged with second degree murder for his role in the Sept. 2, 2014 shooting of a person outside apartments on East Second Street in Jamestown. He and a codefendant, Isaiah Pearson, were arrested in Tennessee three days after the shooting. Pearson was sentenced earlier this year to eight years in prison.
Judge Paul Wojtaszek also sentenced Alexander Jewell, 23, of Jamestown to 10 years in prison for the July 24 shooting of a man in the Tops supermarket parking lot on Washington Street in Jamestown. Jewell pleaded guilty to a charge of first degree assault. The victim sustained two gunshot wounds. Jewell’s codefendant, Michael R. Robinson, 31, also is expected to plead guilty in the shooting.
Acting District Attorney Patrick Swanson credited the work of the Jamestown Police Department on both cases.
