On Tuesday 37 year old Alton Sterling was murdered outside of a convenience store by Baton Rouge Police for selling CDs to support his family. His death has since sparked national outrage, celebrity responses including a letter penned by Drake, and even an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.
Last night in an effort to throw off the general publics rage towards law enforcement, they released Alton Sterling’s full arrest history — and it ain’t pretty….but that’s NOT THE POINT … Yes, this man was no choir boy, but he did NOT deserve to be murdered.
This is what Heavy.com is reporting about the sex offense:
Court records show the victim was a 14-year-old girl at the time of the offenses. According to the charging document on file in the courthouse, the victim’s mother had discovered that she was pregnant after taking her to the doctor. The document says that Sterling, then 20, had been dating the victim for about seven months and having sexual intercourse with her in her bedroom. The charging document says he admitted to the mother having s3x with her daughter and exhibited an “I don’t care” attitude. Heavy.com is withholding the name of the victim and mother and all victims in the Sterling court file.
According to the sentencing document in the court file, the judge gave Sterling 5 years of hard labor in the Louisiana prison system, but then gave him credit for time he already had served and suspended the balance of the sentence, putting him on probation. He was ordered to pursue a GED or trade and to perform community service, among other conditions of probation, the sentencing document says.
