A man could spend over a century in prison after he pleaded guilty to his role in a 2017 shooting, in Sussex County.

The Delaware Department of Justice says on Friday, 19-year-old Stephon Jackson, of Laurel, pleaded guilty to manslaughter, 3 counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and one count of reckless endangering first degree in connection to a 2017 shooting.
