Malique Harrington,  who was found not guilty in December 2021 in the May 2018 murder of Jerry Clark, Jr., at Raymonia Apartments in Vidalia was sentenced for other charges related to o the case by Chief Superior Court Judge Robert Reeves in a Toombs County court last Thursday.

Assistant District Attorney Jessica Wilson presented the State’s case to Chief Superior Court Judge Robert Reeves last Thursday, and after telling the courtroom that the case had weighted heavily on his heart and coming to a decision was not easy for him, Judge Reeves imposed a sentence of a total of 25 years in prison including 20 years on the aggravated assault charge, 5 years to run consecutive probated on the firearm charge, and 10 years concurrent with the aggravated assault for tampering with evidence. In all, Harrington was given 25 years in prison, and must serve 12 years before he is eligible for parole.

Harrington was 19 years of age at the time of the death of Clark. Harrington fled, and about a week later, turned himself into the Acworth Georgia Police Department and transported back to Toombs County. He was initially given limited immunity I the case, but that immunity was not finalized by a Superior Court Judge. Later, Judge Reeves had the opportunity to review the case and based on the evidence he found, he decided to proceed and bring the case to court.

In December of last year, Harrington was found not to be guilty of the charge of felony murder, but he was still facing the three other charges associated with the case last Thursday.

While incarcerated in the Toombs County Detention Center, Harrington was cited for rioting in a penal institution, and unauthorized possession of a weapon, also referred to as a “shank” by an inmate.
