Purse-snatcher receives 'shock therapy' prison sentence

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock teacher says an attack outside the school where she works has forever changed her life.

Jacquetta Perry was walking in the parking lot towards the front door of Maedgen Elementary last September when a man walked up behind her, grabbed her purse straps, and yanked her to the ground.

Perry hit her head on the concrete. The man took her purse and ran.

That man, 26-year-old Jackie Dustin Parker, pleaded guilty in a Lubbock County court on Wednesday.

Parker was sentenced to up to 45 days of "shock therapy" time in prison and six years of community supervision.

'Shock therapy" is a prison term determined by a judge meant to shock offenders before they go on probation.

He must also write a letter of apology to Perry.

But Perry says it will be a long time before she recovers from what happened that day.

"I don't even like to go out on my back porch - or the front - but someday I hope I'm back to where I can go across the street to my neighbors at night," Perry said.

Parker turned himself into police in October.

    The June 12 summit, planned for Singapore, offers a historic chance for peace on the peninsula - but also the risk of an epic diplomatic failure that would allow the North to revive and advance its nuclear weapons program.
