Gang member gets 20 to 40 years for Pittston homicide - News - Citizens Voice

Gang member gets 20 to 40 years for Pittston homicide - News - Citizens Voice: "robbery that turned deadly landed Sinard Ballard 20 to 40 years in prison, punishment for the Philadelphia gang member who arranged the botched crime from a jail phone.
Luzerne County Senior Judge Chester B. Muroski levied the sentence upon Ballard on Tuesday, the culmination of a July plea agreement in which Ballard pleaded guilty to third-degree homicide and robbery in connection with the October 2007 fatal shooting of 19-year-old John Johnson.
While in jail on drug and weapons possession charges, Ballard arranged for Marcellus Thomas to rob Jason Paglianite of Pittston, apparent retribution for a previous robbery in which Ballard said Paglianite stole heroin and cash from his girlfriend, Corissa Breznay. He offered the 21-year-old Thomas of Philadelphia up to $1,500 for the mission and arranged for Breznay to provide him a handgun, prosecutors said."
