Sentence Reduction Denied

In DeKalb County, Cir­cuit Court Judge Kirk Car­pen­ter has denied a peti­tion from a con­victed mur­derer who had been seek­ing a mod­i­fi­ca­tion of his 50 year prison sen­tence. Judge Car­pen­ter issued his rul­ing late last week in the case of Thomas Sex­ton, who pleaded guilty in 1996 to mur­der­ing a co-worker… George Harmes of Angola at the Auburn Dana plant. Sex­ton has been try­ing to get his sen­tence reduced or mod­i­fied for almost three years, but the county pros­e­cu­tors office has filed numer­ous objec­tions dur­ing that same time period, includ­ing a motion to strike the defendant’s peti­tion to mod­ify the sen­tence in August.
