In 2017 Elston Stevenson of Chicago walked into a cemetery during a funeral of a man that had been murdered a couple of days before, pulled out a gun, said “You ain’t @#@#@. You got what you deserved.” shot into the grave, waved the gun at mourners attending the funeral then ran. Stevenson who was a felon was met by police at the entrance to the cemetery and was arrested.
Now in 2020 Elston Stevenson has been sentenced to 15 years in jail after pleading guilty to one count of illegal possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon.
The act was extremely disrespectful to the family of the deceased, however he shot an already deceased persons grave, so the question becomes is the sentence a little harsh especially when just in February of this year a former Chicago police officer Lowell Houser was sentenced to 10 years for murder?
Was the sentence fair or nah?
