Her probation revoked, Shauntay Henderson gets 10 years in prison

Judge pulls probation for Shauntay Henderson, who gets 10 years in prison for 2006 killing.

The Jackson County judge who once gave Shauntay Henderson probation for committing manslaughter was not in a giving mood Friday.

Circuit Judge Robert Schieber revoked her probation and ordered the Kansas City woman who once made the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list to serve 10 years in prison for that 2006 killing.

And Schieber said he wanted the sentence to run consecutive to the federal sentence of seven years and three months that Henderson received earlier this month for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

“I gave you every benefit of the doubt,” Schieber said Friday of his granting of probation after Henderson was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the 2006 shooting death of DeAndre M. Parker. “You’ll get no more consideration from me.”

Henderson, 29, was once described by Kansas City police as a gang member involved in numerous violent crimes.

Ultimately she was prosecuted only for the killing of Parker, and although she got probation for manslaughter, she spent three years in prison for armed criminal action related to the incident.

But five months after she was released from prison in 2010, Henderson was arrested and charged with illegally possessing a firearm.

She pleaded guilty to that charge in federal court and was sentenced April 16. Recorded jailhouse conversations in which Henderson used foul language to describe Schieber were played that day in federal court. But Schieber did not mention that on Friday.

Assistant Prosecutor Michael Hunt presented that federal conviction as the basis to revoke probation. And although defense attorney Keith O’Connor argued that the sentences could not legally be consecutive, Schieber said it was his intent to do so.
