Beaumont man pleads guilty to carjacking, firearms violations
A 19-year-old man from Beaumont has pleaded guilty to federal carjacking and firearms violations.
On March 18 of last year, law enforcement officers spotted a vehicle which had been reported stolen in a robbery two days earlier.
Prosecutors say the driver, Emonte Jackson, led police on a chase. The vehicle struck two parked cars. Jackson ran away, but Beaumont police quickly arrested him after finding Jackson hiding underneath a house.
Jackson faces up to 15 years in federal prison for the carjacking offense and another seven years for the firearms violation. A sentencing date has not been set.
