QUESTION: Whatever happened to the suspects involved in the alleged home invasion on Palm Grove Drive in Rancho Cordova on June 16, 2011?
Submitted by: Rick, Folsom
ANSWER: A Sacramento County jury in January convicted 22-year-old parolee Lawrence Lamar Jackio of multiple charges, including attempted murder, attempted robbery and use of a gun in the June 16, 2011, home invasion robbery that turned into a gun battle.
Jackio was sentenced Friday to 25 years to life in prison, according to Sacramento Superior Court online records.
According to stories in The Bee, Jackio was on parole for burglary when he and an accomplice went to a home in the 9900 block of Palm Grove Drive near Old Placerville Road in Rancho Cordova.
About 3 a.m., a 28-year-old woman who lived at the residence came home with her infant and went into the garage. A sheriff's spokesman said Jackio and his accomplice came up behind the woman and clubbed her over the head. The child's father heard the commotion and came out firing a gun.
Jackio's alleged accomplice was shot in the head, and the homeowner was shot in the hip. Jackio was reportedly shot in the leg and limped to a waiting car. He showed up later at Mercy San Juan Medical Center giving a phony name and no explanation for his injuries. His true identity was discovered a short time later when a woman arrived, saying her boyfriend was there with a gunshot wound and asking for him by name.
