Who is Sean Taylor’s killer Jason Mitchell?

Jason Scott Mitchell, born on January 22, 1988, is a convicted offender.

Mitchell’s personal life is unknown, although he is suspected of being the mastermind behind Sean Taylor’s killing.

Mitchell, who was 19 at the time of Taylor’s murder, was apparently acquaintances with the former Washington Redskins star and had previously stayed at his home.

He spent time with his kid, Malachi, when he wasn’t hanging out with renowned NFL players.

“That’s his joy right there,” Mitchell’s twin brother, Scottie Mitchell, said, via the Tampa Bay Times.

How many years was Jason Mitchell sentenced?

Mitchell was convicted of first-degree criminal murder and armed burglary on June 10, 2014.

According to the Miami Herald, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy sentenced him to life in prison immediately after his conviction, which is the required jail term for first-degree murder.

Earlier this year, alleged shooter Eric Rivera was found guilty and sentenced to almost 60 years in prison for his part in Taylor’s death.

How did Sean Taylor die?

On November 27, 2007, numerous intruders woke Taylor awake in his Miami, Florida, home.

According to CBS Sports, he was shot in the leg after confronting the intruders, and the bullet entered his femoral artery, causing him to bleed to death.

The attackers anticipated he would not be home because the Redskins were out of town, but Taylor stayed at home due to an injury.

During the trial, Michell’s attorneys argued that he was not liable for Taylor’s death since he did not fire the trigger, but prosecutors disagreed, claiming that he is to blame because it was his idea.

“It doesn’t matter whether they planned to kill him (Taylor) or intended to kill him, he died as a result of that burglary and they are all responsible for it,” Assistant State Attorney Reid Rubin said during closing arguments, via CBS News. “At the center of it all was Jason Mitchell.”

Taylor was survived by his parents, Pedro Taylor and Donna Junor, his then-fiancée, Jackie Garcia, and his daughter, Jackie Taylor.
