“For nearly two years Jackson led a robbing crew that rained terror on innocent victims” David J. LeValley, head of the FBI’s Atlanta office, said in the news release.
Jackson and others committed 11 armed robberies, seven targeting Walmart stores, between February 2014 and October 2015, prosecutors said.
Deanthony Foster and Eric Lamar Ross were previously sentenced for their roles in the robberies. Foster was a gunman and received a 32-year prison sentence. Ross was a lookout during two of the robberies and got five years in prison.
Jackson and the other crew members researched stores in DeKalb, Gwinnett, Cobb, Clayton and Forsyth counties. They would usually strike between 10 p.m. and midnight.
