As part of his guilty plea, Clarkson waived his trial and appeal rights, officials said.
The Sullivan County District Attorney’s Office has joined with Flecha’s family and loved ones in saying no sentence can repair the damage caused by Clarkson’s actions. County Court Judge Jim Farrell ultimately sentenced Clarkson to 22 years in life, noting the deliberate and personal nature of Clarkson’s attack on the victim.
“This defendant devastated our community by brutally killing the mother of his children,” said Galligan. “I thank Jailyn’s family for standing up for her in court and caring for and raising her children. Jailyn leaves behind a legacy of love and friendship that cannot be extinguished even by the ruthless crime of this accused My office will continue to work with Jailyn’s family to ensure that she and our community are protected from this accused for the rest of her natural life.
