LAS VEGAS – Pimp, Ammar Harris, was sentenced to death for each of the three people he killed on the Las Vegas Strip. Family members of the victims cheered, when the sentence was read…
On Feb. 21, 2013, Harris argued with another pimp, Kenny “Clutch” Cherry Jr. in the valet of the Aria hotel and casino after leaving Haze nightclub inside…
Minutes later, Harris pulled alongside Kenneth Cherry Jr.’s car on the Strip and fired a bullet that killed him. Cherry’s Maserati then slammed into a taxi, causing an explosion that killed driver Michael Boldon, 62, and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, 48, a mother of three from Washington.
Harris fled the scene and headed to a club to party the night away. Harris was found in California and extradited back to Las Vegas..
The girl who was inside the car with Harris at the time of the shooting, Yenesis Alfonso, testified against him in order to get a plea deal in her soliciting case.
Earlier in the day, the jury was given instructions on deliberating on a punishment for self-described pimp.
The forensic psychologist, Dr. Shera Bradley, believes it was his childhood of neglect and abuse that lead to his choices. “So, basically, when we have these damaging and impairing factors in our life, it affects choice in such a way that the more damaging and impairing factors, the less culpability,” Bradley told the court.
