Man headed to prison for injuring 4-year-old girl in shooting outside her home

Man headed to prison for injuring 4-year-old girl in shooting outside her home. A man who wounded a 4-year-old girl sitting outside her Asbury Park home last year when he began firing shots at it was sentenced Wednesday to eight years in state prison, authorities said.

Sciaire N. Jackson, 28, of Lakewood, previously pleaded guilty to second degree aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, according to a statement from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.

The shooting happened on Aug. 18, 2020 at 1:35 p.m. while the girl was sitting with her twin sister and other family members on Boston Way, a residential village in the city, the office said. She was shot in the upper thigh area and the bullet broke her femur bone, officials said. At the time her injury was considered serious but non-life threatening.

An investigation by the office and the Asbury Park Police Department revealed that Jackson rode up to the home on a bicycle and began firing a handgun at people outside it, officials said. The girl was not the intended target, they said.

A second person returned fire at Jackson but as of this week, that person had still not been identified.

Q. My husband, 56, divorced his first wife in 2009. The divorce decree awarded her 50% of his 401(k) and pension. The decree stated she had six months to file a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). He stopped adding funds to his 401(k) when they initially separated, which was two years before the divorce. It has now been 12 years and his ex-wife has never filed a QDRO. The 401(k) has since doubled in value. Does the ex still have the legal standing to file a QDRO even though it’s long past the window the court stated? If so, would she be eligible for 50% of the current value or the value of the account in 2009?

Married still

A. Divorce agreements can be complicated.

Your answer will depend in large part of the language of the divorce agreement.

Unless it explicitly asserts that your husband’s former spouse expressly waives her right to share in the retirement assets if she doesn’t submit a timely QDRO, a court will probably decide in her favor, said Jeralyn Lawrence, a family law attorney with Lawrence Law in Watchung.

The court would most likely provide her with her contemplated value of the accounts, along with any passive growth or loss on her share, she said.

“Passive growth excludes any contribution(s) made by your husband following his divorce from his former spouse, and his former spouse would not be entitled to share in any post-complaint contributions made by your husband,” Lawrence said.

While it appears that the agreement provides a timeframe within which to effectuate the QDRO and division of the retirement assets, family law courts are courts of equity and fairness, she said.

“While your husband may make a legal argument for laches, or lack of diligence in making a legal claim for relief, his former spouse’s failure to proceed in a timely manner with the QDRO process will most likely not prevent her from receiving the share of retirement accounts to which she is entitled under the terms of the agreement itself,” Lawrence said. “However, she will be limited to that value, alone, and will not be permitted to reap the benefit of any growth on your husband’s share of the account that has accumulated from his active contributions or passive growth to these accounts following their divorce to the present day.”
