We already know who snitched. The desired hit man was so pissed and insulted that he called the cops. Lol You’re treating someone worse than a crack head when you offer so little pay for that big of a job What kind of incentive is thirty bucks? Cheetos and ramen noodles for a week! And how much does $30.00 get you in prison? Because obviously they aren’t touched by rising gas prices! I’m getting jealous.
Madison, WI – A Madison man was sentenced to 11 years in prison for offering to pay someone $30 to kill a Madison police officer.
Alijouwon T. Watkins, 20, was also sentenced to 12 years of extended supervision and was given credit for the year and a half of jail time he already served.
Madison police said Watkins was an inmate at the Dane County Jail in 2016 when he actively sought someone to kill an MPD officer and took steps to put a plan in motion, including the transfer of money. Watkins had personal identifying information about the officer, including her name, date of birth, address and a cellphone number, according to a criminal complaint. He also knew the officer’s work hours and the district in which she worked.
Watkins was found guilty of battery, disorderly conduct, criminal damage to property, intimidation of a victim, intimidating a witness, solicitation of perjury, resisting an officer, escape, conspiracy to commit first-degree intentional homicide.
According to a criminal complaint, Watkins and another inmate discussed the plan by passing notes in jail.
The inmate Watkins approached about killing the officer had Watkins call his “uncle” to arrange the deal and transfer of money, but according to the complaint, the person on the other line was a police officer.
Police said the officer had previously arrested Watkins and that it involved a violent, domestic confrontation in which the officer was injured.
Watkins is also accused of trying to find someone who would claim to have witnessed the prior incident and provide false testimony.
Watkins was charged in Dane County Court on Monday with conspiracy to commit first-degree intentional homicide, felony intimidation of a witness and solicitation of perjury before a court.
