Tykel Wilson, 22, who received a suspended sentence in 2021, was re-sentenced by DC Superior Court Judge Lynn Leibovitz on July 3 in connection to a carjacking incident.  

Wilson’s probation was revoked for his original sentence involving an attempted carjacking that occurred on the 500 block of 4th Street, SE on March 29, 2021.  

Wilson was sentenced to serve 36 months of his sentence with three years of supervised release. 

In 2021, Wilson pled guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon. He was initially sentenced to 36 months for his involvement in the crime with the provision that he would have 12 months suspended. 

Wilson was sentenced under the Youth Rehabilitation Act (YRA), meaning that if sentencing, probation, and all special conditions were met then Wilson’s conviction record would be sealed.

While on probation, in July 2023, Wilson was arrested for an armed carjacking that occurred on April 29, 2023 on the 900 block of Allison Street, NW. 

On June 28, Wilson pleaded guilty to armed carjacking and possession of a firearm during a crime of violence for the incident that occurred in April.

Sentencing for the 2023 incident is slated for Sept. 27, with the sentence being served consecutively to the sentence Judge Leibovitz imposed on July 3.
