In a deal with prosecutors, Jackson last week pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and conspiracy to obstruct justice. Other charges including murder and kidnapping were dropped, and Jackson was required to testify about the incident. Before the sentence was handed down, the prosecutor said in closing arguments that the squad, seven Marines and a sailor, had become a lawless gang intent on killing. "They were not a squad of Marines; they were a gang with a state of mind to kill someone," Maj. Donald Plowman said. http://deseretnews.com/dn/view/0,1249,650207829,00.html
