Black-on-black crime: A woman accused of orchestrating a vicious attack on a mother and her 3-year-old daughter with liquid Drano has been sentenced to 15 years in prison
Tamara Jackson, 31, was convicted of several charges, including second-degree assault, for her part in the March 29, 2010 incident in suburban Washington, D.C. Her accomplice Tikia Anderson was also convicted of charges against her, including possession of a deadly weapon with intent to injure. She was the one who poured the powerful chemical on the two, and is currently serving an eight-year sentence. Jackson was sentenced to 15 years in prison, after a jury found her guilty of conspiracy to commit first-degree assault. She was primarily motivated by jealousy, for the express reason that the woman, Katrina Watts, had recently began dating Jackson’s ex-boyfriend.
