Woods sentencing stillJudge George Southworth gave Jayson Woods a stiff sentencing today in Canyon County court, life with a minimum of 28 years served.  Woods is the only one of the four co-defendants in Steven Nelson’s murder who choose to have a jury trial rather than agree to a plea deal.  The prosecutor told me they offered him a 10 year plea but he refused it, took his chances with a jury and lost.  Steve’s family again had to go through the heartbreak of reading victim impact statements in court.
