Man severely beaten in Sherman robbery

SHERMAN, TEXAS -- A man is in the hospital with a broken jaw and one of the three suspects was tased and is in jail.

Princeton Johnson is in jail.

Sherman police say he and two others severely beat a man at the Creekview Apartments, then took his wallet.

A little later, police say they found Johnson carrying property from burglarized cars at the complex.

He took off and police say they tased, then arrested him.

They're still looking for the two other suspects.

    What about the victim who now has mounting hospital bills, is postponed from starting his new career, and now has to go with no income, and possible no insureance due to his new employment status. If these worthless criminals would put as much energy into finding a job and actually be a productive member of society instead of commiting crimes he would not be in jail because of this, nor would innocent victims be hurt. Do not feel sorry for this criminal, and why should people forgive someone how has no respect for others. We should not make excuses for him because he is going through a tough time in his life. Numerous people have had rough lives or times in there lives and have not assaulted people. He should rot in jail.

      "What about the victim who now has mounting hospital bills" Those will be paid by the state using taxpayer dollars under the Texas Crime Victim's fund

    Thankfully they have arrested Dakota English, who was also involved in this. I would love to know if the third person has been arrested. Does anyone know? There have not been any updates on this story that I know of. I hope that all three of them are charged accordingly and do their time in jail. I pray that the victim has gotten his life back to normal, or as normal as it can be.

      If you choose to hold that anger in for the 5-7 years that he is going to do then you are not hurting anyone but yourself. I hope that you are able to let go of that anger and realize that he is not worth your time and energy and definately not worth a charge of your own. God Bless.

    I'm writing this for a few reasons: 1st and for most, I hope Princeton sees ALL these comments good and bad. He needs to see how his actions affect him, his, family, and his community. Princeton, I know u have been through some really tough situations in your life, but let your support system be stronger than your hate...we may not agree with every choice you make, but we love you unconditionally, and want you to be the man your mom raised you to be. 2nd: Jamie...just like some of the other comments made...you are absolutely the strongest woman I know. You did the best you could to keep him on the right track as a kid, but even though this has worn thin on you, now is the time your strength is needed the most. Remember, when you don't think you have the strength anymore, you can borrow mine, and I'm sure you can borrow from other friends and family to. We are all here for you and Princeton, through it all. I Love you both.
    3rd: Tim, thank you for being a man of forgiveness and strength. This horrible ordeal was uncalled for, and I wish you a quick recovery. I know when Princeton starts to try and find forgiveness for his abuser, he will be able to look at your actions and learn from them.
    Everyone stay strong!!

      He'll have plenty of time to see all the failures in his life while he serves 5-99 yrs in prison. Less thugs like this on the streets is a good thing. Good riddance.

      So Princeton was abused? Now he can be abused in prison as well. They love pretty boys like him in the pen.

      Raised by just his mother? That explains a lot right there. There is a movie called absent about crime, drugs, and everything bad that young men and women do and how most can be directly associated with being raised by a single mom. You single mothers need to watch this movie and get your children a good father figure before it is too late.

        Instead of preaching to the mothers to "get a good father figure" why dont you preach to the men to start stepping upto the plate. By the way, just getting a good man in your life has no guarantee that it is going to "fix" anything. This kid has an amazing stepfather and it sure didn't help this situation. The laws here and in MANY other states don't help at all...maybe if some of those were changed, then things might start to improve. Kids have too many rights. I love Princeton, however I agree that he deserves to do his time in jail.

      This is not a child. He's a grown adult and it's too late for him. The best thing for him would be to spend the rest of his life in prison with others like him. Peace out chump!

    Why is everyone thinking he's islamic? He's mixed?
    Prince does need maximum sentencing, he needs to learn. I love that boy dearly and is such a great friend to me, but its time to grow up.

    This is brii a somewhat family memeber I grew up with him and his brothers and sisters his mommy is like my aunt and I know for a fact that she didnt raise him like that she woulda beat the mess out of any of us back then and still probably would if she had the chance im not sticking up for princeton but you people with hateful comments should keep them to yourself if he was to see that it could do some emotional damage...such as wishing he was dead or someone woulda shot him I mean hell what if that was your kid or brother or sister would you be saying that
