Quite a lot of talk since I last checked the site! I must agree with Sarah from Dekalb. There seems to be quite a lot of people sticking up for someone that plead guilty... I know that if I didn't do it, the last damn thing I would be doing is taking a plea. Where is the logic in that?
Not to worried about it though. I am sure that his new roommate "Bubba" will have something nice, hard, and warm for him when the lights go out. One can only hope that jailhouse justice takes place and he is laying 6 feet under next to his son soon. Child killers are at the bottom of the totem pole in prison right next to the pedophiles. I am sure that he would make a nice "bitch" for some big, strong man...LMAO
I hope he rots...

i dont know who your "excellent" authority is about his other children but i am one of their mothers. i think i know better than you about those situations. our son saw jason every other weekend.
i agree kole should still be alive but no one knows what really happened that day aside from sydney and jason.
as for sydney's reaction to kole being in the hospital...its either suspicious or totally normal "in shock" behavior. you dont know the answer and neither do i.
that is not normal behavior for a mother to watch their child like that. i know for a fact that syd sat there at the hospital right after it happened and didnt even shed a tear. she was with that baby before she went to work. and she is the last one that saw him. so what does that make you think. she is a coniving lieng slut. who work in a bar with slutty ass clothes on after this happens. she needs to rot in jail!

Rob, you obviously haven't had much formal education so let me help you out a little bit. When someone pleads guilty to a crime, that means they did it. It doesn't mean the police tricked them, or their lawyer was an idiot. It means that they chose NOT to go to court because they knew that the facts that would be presented would be enough for a conviction. The Prosecutor, gives them a deal for not taking up the courts time, hence a shorter prison sentence.
Maybe why you are actually so upset is because now your lover will be getting it from other men, rather than you. I don't know why you are so adamant about defending an admitted child murderer, but I feel more sorry for you. It must be tough not having your lover close by.
Oh, and sorry for using such large words sometimes. I tried to keep them small. If you find any of them that are difficult, or hard, use a dictionary. You might gain something from it and benefit society instead of just being a Troll on forums...Schmuck!

i could see jason doing this.. he beat on his last girlfriend so what makes anyone think he wouldnt do it to a baby. he cares about noone but himself.. i am not saying he did it, but i could see him doing it. i believe sydney had something to do with it as well. i have a source that was also in the room, and she was not worried or upset about kole. but more worried about herself being comfortable. jason has a HORRIBLE temper. and is definetly capibable of doing this.

And so you all (Ok, MOST of you) continue defending this guy. Maybe he didn't mean for the baby to die, but then again, most who shake a baby don't....they lose it in a moment of rage. Baby won't stop crying. He loses his temper. Hurts the baby. And then realizes what he's done. I'm not saying he's not sorry......I'm sure he is very sorry. But what I am saying is cold, hard facts. He plead guilty. If I was not guilty, I can tell you one thing....I would fight as hard as I could to clear my name and defend myself. Were any of you in the courtroom?! Did any of you hear his defense?! Did you hear the details?! Funny thing. He must not like prison much. Just saw this on his file. He trying to get it overturned now?

He probably has found a new "buddy" that has been giving him exactly what he deserves!.. IMO it couldn't have happened to a better guy.. Hopefully they are making him dress like a bitch and forcing him to wear makeup...LMAO

the mother told him to "take a nap" before she left for work. kole was "sleeping" in his playpen. jason woke up 3-4 hours later. he was not the one that called 911 and he was not on the brink of suicide because of "what he did to kole". he was at his recently deceased uncle's grave, worried that he would get blamed for this. his "confession" does not account for all the broken and twisted bones. nor does it account for the damage i saw personally 2 weeks prior.
no one knows what happened and the police did not do an investigation. you can call what i say defending if you want to, but i'm stating fact here, not my opinion. if he did this and it can be proven, then by all means, let him rot in jail. kole did nothing, he was a baby, but the right people need to be brought to justice for his terrible death.
there are facts...sarah just stated those facts. he was the only one home and he did commit the crime( why make up so many lies before you tell the truth?)...he did call 911, there is a recording of it. he was out at his uncles grave...with a knife ( why would the PD make that up?) he is very manipulative and a liar...he lied about everything...right down to the military...he got into a fight and was kicked out. proven fact, period. he lied about cars he drove, how much money he had, houses he said he owned but didnt. i believe that he did have a rough life growing up which is unfair...but he needed help. Its very sad that everyone on here is arguing about what jason did or didnt do...and even if that girl syd did do it or had something to do with it....why didnt he say nething or open is mouth, becasue the jason that i know...would have thrown anybody under the bus to save his own ass. whats more disturbing is that there is a beautiful baby boy who lost his life due to careless adults. it is very sad and it makes me angry becasue NO CHILD should be beaten to death for just being innocent. Fly High in the heavens Kole...

for the most part, i agree with you. i don't know why he made up all those stories, i don't know why if she had something to do with it that he didn't throw her under the bus...i just don't know. and you are correct, kole did not deserve to have to die because of the carelessness of the adults in charge of him.

No it's not Sydnee Darras. I don't know who Sydnee is really. All I know is everyone needs to grow up and go off facts rather than hear say.

well I'm really not familiar with the case....but I will say this...just because u plead guilty doesn't mean u are. Sometimes it means the prosecutor has trumped up the charges sooo high that if u are found guilty you are completely screwed....It is common knowledge that prosecutors ALWAYS over-charge to try and impose a "deal" on u. It is a automatic win for his record and it cost the state less. I don't know if he did it...but people need to be aware of the facts of prosecutors over-charging. Lesson to all is...sometimes your better off to take it to the box...its likely that that prosecutor has over-charged u and at least 1 jury member will realize that u maybe guilty of one thing..but not what the prosecutor has charged u with....the risk that the prosecutor takes is if u call his bluff and take it to the box and are found not guilty because he over-charged u. Too many fall for this trickery....take it to the box! And never get a court appointed lawyer...all lawyers are required to take so many court appointed cases a year and they are paid the same amount whether they have 10 hours on your case or 100...so its in his best interest to get ur case off his desk and convince you to take a plea too, because he has other paying customers who require his time and attention....hope this helps someone in the future!
