Green sentenced to 30 years for kidnapping

PASCAGOULA , MS (WLOX) - Jess Lee Green was sentenced Friday to 30 years in prison for the June 30 to July 2, 2007 armed robbery, kidnapping and sexual battery of two victims occurring at the Ocean Springs Wal-Mart parking lot. 

The sentence will be served day-for-day meaning Green is not eligible for parole or early release. 

Green, 21 of Ocean Springs, pleaded guilty on August 4, 2008.  Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Dale Harkey had deferred sentencing to await a pre-sentence investigation. 

Judge Harkey imposed a sentence of 30 years on each charge with each to run concurrent.   

The crimes occurred when Green confronted the two victims on separate occasions in the parking lot of Wal-Mart.  On one occasion, he forced his way into the car of one of the victims while armed with a gun, then sexually assaulted and robbed her. On the other occasion he talked the victim into giving him a ride, after which he robbed and attempted to assault her.  Both assaults happened away from Wal-Mart.
