Ex-SAU student gets 42 months in prison for theft

Posted: Updated:

IDABEL, Okla. (AP) - A former Southern Arkansas University rodeo team member has been sentenced to 42 months in prison in Oklahoma for stealing horses from the school stables.

Jaci Jackson was also sentenced Monday to seven years of probation for her role in the theft of horses and equipment in 2011. The horses were discovered in Oklahoma - including one that had been killed - and Jackson faced charges in both states.

She's set to be sentenced in Arkansas on Feb. 6 for the theft.

Special District Judge Gary Brock agreed that the theft was instigated by Jackson's mother, Wendi Cox, who is serving a 60-year prison sentence for her role in the crimes. According to the Texarkana Gazette (http://bit.ly/1hIiAUO ), Jackson cried during Monday's sentencing. Her attorney, Rick Stout, declined to comment.
