Press Release For Immediate Release October 12, 2007

(HAMILTON, OH) - Jeremy Harris and Chance Tabor were sentenced today in Butler County Common Pleas Court for their roles in a pair of robberies of pizza delivery drivers last December, the latter of which resulted in the death of Jeffrey Wilson.

Harris, a 23-year-old Hamilton man, was convicted by a jury in August of Murder and two counts of Robbery (F2). In addition, Harris was on probation for a 2005 Burglary (F3) and Theft (F5) at the time of the pizza robberies. After hearing trial testimony establishing Harris' role as the more culpable of the two co-defendants, the Honorable Judge Andrew Nastoff sentenced Harris to a combined term of 28 years to life, which included a five year sentence for his probation violation and a maximum eight year sentence for the robbery or Ronald Davis, both running consecutive to the 15-to-life sentence for Murder.

Tabor, also a 23-year-old Hamilton man, plead guilty as charged to the indictment, which also involved charges of Murder and two counts of Robbery (F2). Pursuant to Tabor's plea agreement, Judge Nastoff ran the robbery sentences concurrent to the murder sentence, resulting in a sentence of 15 years to life.

Prosecutor Piper stated, "This homicide victim worked a full time job and was delivering pizza for some extra money to help out his son. Two thugs caused his death because they thought it would be easy to ambush and rob pizza delivery drivers. Their behavior was cruel and indifferent and they didn't care about hurting other people. If you hurt someone and cause their death, you will be accountable under the law. These two may have thought they were just petty thugs, but they are killers. We are extremely grateful to the Butler County Sheriff's Office and the Hamilton Police Department which solved these attacks before the pair could inflict more damage. Our hearts go out to the surviving family members of Mr. Wilson. He was a good man who didn't deserve this."
