Partlow and Thomas were also convicted of first degree assault. Prior to reaching a deal with prosecutors, the pair was charged with attempted murder and rioting.

Thomas, who was just 14-years-old at the time of the shooting, was sentenced to 25 years, but will only be required to serve five-years behind bars, followed by five-years of supervised probation upon release. A judge handed down the same sentence for Partlow.

As for Jackson, he was ordered to serve one year of a five-year sentence in jail, followed by two-years probation.
