Darrick Anderson receives life sentence

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) --The man convicted in the stabbing death of another man in Madison makes a plea for leniency.  In court Thursday, Darrick Anderson was told he would not have a chance at parole. 

24-year old Darrick Anderson was convicted last October of killing 46-year-old Andrew Nesbitt. It happened inside his North Butler Street apartment on March 27th.
    At the sentencing hearing, Judge John Hyland described Anderson as sly -- and said in considering Anderson's conduct quote -- "I have to draw the conclusion that the protection of the public requires that Mr. Anderson never be eligible for release." 
    The hearing was scheduled to determine extended supervision; however,, Anderson made a plea to the judge -- asking for leniency.

"You know what I did wasn't right wasn't justified and hopefully I get the help I need, you know," Anderson said.

Judge Hyland told Anderson that keeping parole off the table was a difficult decision to make because he usually believes in second chances.  
Anderson was convicted for First-Degree Intentional Homicide.  Judge Hyland imposed the mandatory life sentence
