Maximum Sentence

A convicted murderer will spend more than 50 years in prison.

A judge has sentenced Anthony Jimenez to 54 years for the murder of a 16 year-old girl.

Jimenez and Michael Easton were accused of kidnapping, raping, and killing Jennnifer Baker nearly 4 years ago.

He told investigators the girl begged for her life and pleaded to be let go. That was a factor in the judge's decision to give him the maximum 48-year sentence and another 6 years for a conspiracy conviction.

Jimenez could face another trial on charges of 1st degree murder, kidnapping, rape and conspiracy.
