Father of Six-Year-Old Boy Shot Dead ‘Angry’ at San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin After Learning One of His Son’s Killers May Get Less Than Eight Years in Prison

Jace Young, 6, was fatally shot while watching Fourth of July fireworks in 2020 with his dad

The dad of a six-year-old boy who was shot dead is speaking out against San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin after it emerged one of his son’s killers is likely to be in jail for less time than his little boy was alive.

Jason Young’s son, Jace, was killed on July 4, 2020, having been caught in gunfire while the pair were outside to watch a firework show in the city’s Bayview District.

Jace was caught in crossfire and despite being rushed to hospital did not survive the shooting.

Two gunmen were quickly identified: 18-year-old James Harbor and 17-year-old Deshaune Lumpkin, who was apprehended a year later.

Chesa Boudin, 41, became the city’s District Attorney in January 2020. One of Boudin’s key campaign promises was to never allow those who are under 18 to be tried as an adult, no matter how horrific the crime. It means one of Jace’s killers may get less than eight years in jail
Jace’s father, Jason, pictured in July 2020, told Fox News this week: ‘The killer of my six-year-old son will likely serve less time than the age of my son because of Chesa’s campaign promise’

But a campaign promise for all criminals under 18 to be tried as juveniles may mean one of the killers will spend less than a decade in jail while the other may be behind bars for most of his life.

‘I am so angry with Chesa Boudin right now. He makes San Francisco’s criminal justice system a complete joke,’ Jason Young told Fox News.

‘The killer of my six-year-old son will likely serve less time than the age of my son because of Chesa’s campaign promise. Boudin’s campaign promises do not protect San Franciscans and ensure justice – they only allow criminals, and in this case, murderers, to return to the community.
