Hartford Man Sentenced on Assault, Burglary, Fabrication of Evidence and Forgery Charges
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Rocky Hill, CT) – A Hartford man has been sentenced in two of 12 criminal cases he has pending in Superior Court in Connecticut. The sentences were imposed by the Honorable Maureen M. Keegan in New Britain Superior Court.
Junior Jumpp, age 32, was sentenced on November 23, 2022 to 10 years in prison, suspended after six years served, followed by five years of probation on charges of Forgery in the Second Degree and Fabricating Physical Evidence. According to court records, in May 2019, Jumpp was a defendant in a criminal jury case before the Honorable Jason M. Lobo in New Britain Superior Court, charged with 32 counts of Violation of a Criminal Protective Order. While incarcerated awaiting trial, Jumpp made phone calls to the protected person. Records show he then obtained and modified a Connecticut Department of Correction document that purported to show that he was in restrictive housing when some of the calls were made and that he did not have access to phones. The fake document was presented as evidence before the jury during the May 2019 trial.
Also on November 23, 2022, Jumpp was sentenced to 10 years in prison, suspended after three years served, followed by five years of probation on charges of Burglary in the Third Degree and Assault in the Third Degree. According to court documents, Jumpp entered the Manchester home of a complainant in December 2017 and assaulted her while she was holding a small child. The victim was treated at a hospital for injuries she suffered during the assault. Judge Keegan issued Standing Criminal Protective Orders on behalf of the complainant and the child that are in effect until November 23, 2042.
The two sentences are to run concurrently, for a total effective sentence of 10 years in prison, suspended after six years served, followed by probation for five years. The defendant was subject to enhanced penalties for being a Persistent Serious Felony Offender.
Jumpp’s criminal cases are being prosecuted by the Statewide Prosecution Bureau in the Office of the Chief State's Attorney. The Bureau is grateful for the assistance it received from the Manchester Police Department and the Connecticut Department of Correction.
