A defendant who once mooned a jury and called the judge a "cracker" has again been sentenced to 33 years in prison for attacking his former girlfriend, but this time there were no more eruptions.
Cornell Jackson has received the same sentence that he was given after two trials in 2003. Those convictions were reversed and he was retried because mental competency hearings hadn't been held.
Jackson has also been ordered ten years of probation once he's released from prison. A new jury convicted him of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with great bodily injury, aggravated assault and armed burglary.
Jackson slashed Kisha Smith in 2000. A second attack left her with permanent facial scars.
Jackson refused to attend his first trial and was removed from his second after he bared his buttocks.
