Markquise Wallace Gets Max Sentence Of 65 Years For Double Fatal Hit And Run

December 13, 2019

Markquise Deshawn Wallace was sentenced Friday to 65 year is state prison for a double fatal hit and run in Escambia County. That was the maximum sentence allowed under state law.

Wallace must serve 85%, or just over 55 years, of the sentence, according to State Attorney Bill Eddins. His driver’s license was also permanently revoked under the sentence handed down by Judge Lacey Powell Clark.

Three people were crossing Cervantes Street near M Street when they were hit by a Dodge Challenger driven at a high rate of speed by Wallace, according to Pensacola Police. Neariaah Ikerria Williams, age 8 months, and a family friend, 28-year-old Nephateria Monique Williams, died. The child’s mother, 27-year-old Quineka Tyon Baldwin, was injured.

A jury deliberated for about four hours November 8 before finding Wallace guilty on two counts of vehicular homicide, two counts of failing to remain at a crash site involving death and one count of tampering with an electronic monitoring device.

    “Your hustle determines you salary”

    Hustle: can be paralleled with Works.

    Salary: can be paralleled with wages.

    I’ll bet his shirt has more meaning than he realized.

    (Romans 6:23 KJV) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    I hope they nail his accomplices who helped him hide the car and elude arrest for so long

    One day, maybe, this person will get out of prison, if he lives long enough, and people will look at him as an old man that has paid his debt to society. Most will have forgottten that fatful day but this debt can never be paid. Quineka Tyon Baldwin’s heart will never heal from the loss of her child and neither will the mother of Nephateria Monique Williams. Wallace’s total disregaurd for other peoples lives has cost him and in my openion not nearly enough.
