STATESVILLE, NC: The Violent Crimes Collaborative has been working since January, through aggressive investigation and multi-jurisdictional sharing of resources and information, to address the surge in violent criminal activity that occurred in our community at the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018. Their efforts are continuing to pay off as they, along with the District Attorney’s office, had another major conviction this week in Superior Court. Chance Jamison was charged in connection to multiple shots fired and armed robbery incidents occurring from August 2017 through March 2018; On July 11, 2018, he pled guilty to felony charges.

Chance Jalieb Jamison, 17yo of 11th St Statesville, pled guilty to two (2) counts of Conspiracy to Commit Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon, one (1) count of Discharging a Firearm into Occupied Property and one (1) count of Possession of 5 or more Counterfeit Instruments.

Assistant District Attorney Mikko Red Arrow updated SPD that the defendant, Jamison, received two (2) consecutive 31 – 50 months active sentences, followed by consecutive 25-42 months and 16-29 months suspended sentences, with supervised probation (read: a minimum of 62 months active incarceration with a minimum of 41 months supervised probation upon release from active sentences).

Statesville PD appreciates the continued hard work and cooperation of the District Attorney’s office for helping ensure the successful prosecution of violent and frequent offenders. Identifying, locating and arresting suspects is only half the battle. Our responsibility and accountability to victims, their family and justice for our community extends from the investigation and arrest all the way through to a successful conviction. We look forward to continuing a productive and close relationship with the DA’s office as we work together to bring successful prosecution and convictions as an end to the other violent crime cases that remain active.
