15 Years = 6?
A former city of Chicago health department employee convicted of running over a cabdriver with his own taxi has been released on parole after six years in prison.
Michael L. Jackson was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 2006 for the death of Haroon Paryani.
According to the Illinois Department of Corrections website, Jackson was released Friday from Logan Correctional Center.
Jackson was convicted of second-degree murder in Paryani's death. He was acquitted of first-degree murder and aggravated criminal hijacking.
He was accused of running over Paryani on Feb. 4, 2005, during a dispute over an $8 cab fare. Prosecutors and witnesses said Jackson drove the cab over Paryani three times.
Where's the justice in this?
