Deshaune Lumpkin Wiki – Deshaune Lumpkin Biography

Deshaune Lumpkin, one of four suspects in the killing of Jace Young, was recently found guilty of murder and is facing a maximum sentence of eight years in prison. Young’s family criticized the decision to try Lumpkin, who was 17 at the time of the shooting, as a juvenile and said he’s not being held accountable.

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is “out of touch and really dismissive,” Jason Young, the father of a slain 6-year-old, told Fox News.

Age

He is 18 years old.

Jace Young Murder

Young was shot and killed while playing with friends in San Francisco’s Bayview neighbourhood on July 4, 2020.

“Jace was outside playing with fireworks around 10:30 p.m. when a group … fired from across the street,” Jason Young told Fox News.

According to Jason Young, about 12 rounds were fired before the shooters fled. A 39-year-old man was also hit, though he survived nonlife-threatening injuries.

Trial

Critics have argued that Boudin, facing a recall, has not been aggressive enough in prosecuting crime, making San Francisco less safe. The self-proclaimed progressive ran on reform promises and recently criticized liberal San Francisco Mayor London Breed’s enhanced funding for law enforcement in parts of the city.

“The police are doing their due diligence to try to solve these crimes and hold people accountable for these crimes,” Jason Young told Fox News. “The district attorney’s office is not willing to prosecute and hold these criminals accountable.”

“Because of the politics and the policies of the district attorney, there’s no accountability,” he continued.

Another suspect, James Harbor, was charged with five felony counts, including murder, related to the shooting. He has yet to stand trial despite getting arrested in January 2021.

After a two-week hearing in juvenile court, Lumpkin, who turned 18 after the shooting, was found guilty of four of the six counts against him related to the child’s Fourth of July killing, including murder and attempted murder.

California juvenile prosecution laws indicate that Lumpkin will serve no more than eight years and will be out by the time he is 25.

“Let’s talk about the fact that the guilty verdict is only going to do maybe five years,” Young, concerned that Lumpkin could serve an even shorter sentence or get released early, said.

“My son barely lived that long,” he continued.
