In August, Jackson was found guilty of manslaughter and aggravated assault with a firearm.
Detectives say he fired shots into a crowd on Bourbon Street during a fight, and one of the stray bullets struck bartender Spencer Hudson in the chest, killing him in March of 2022.
A 21-year-old tourist, Ambrosia Hayes, was also hit by a bullet. She survived her injuries, and gave an impact statement against Jackson at his sentencing, telling the court that she thought New Orleans was a “magical” city until the shooting.
Hayes said that since then, she has recurring nightmares about getting shot.
