CHICAGO – A Chicago man has been sentenced to 13 years for carjacking a woman outside an Old Town grocery store in 2019, according to court records.

Isaiah Jackson, 22, pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular hijacking in exchange for the sentence from Judge Aleksandra Gillespie. He received a pair of consecutive 3-year sentences for separate charges of aggravated battery of peace officers.

Jackson and his alleged accomplice, Cameron King, 21, were accused of confronting a woman as she loaded groceries into her car at Jewel Osco, 424 West Division, on July 23, 2019. Police said King pulled out a handgun and demanded her keys. She complied, and the two men got into her Audi. But the pair ran away when a security guard intervened.

Chicago police released surveillance images of two suspects shortly after the carjacking. King quickly turned himself in to Matteson police, and CPD officers arrested Jackson in Avondale.

Jackson’s sentence will be cut in half for good behavior and by 1,358 days of credit earned before pleading. His parole date has been set for January 1, 2029, according to Illinois Department of Corrections records.

King pleaded guilty earlier this year and also received a 13-year sentence plus two years for going AWOL to Nebraska after escaping from electronic monitoring.

Both men avoided even longer sentences by pleading to aggravated vehicular hijacking with a weapon instead the original charge, aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm, which carries an additional 15-year sentencing enhancement.
