By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - In the summer of '09, one of boxing favorite sons and a spectacular fighter in Vernon Forrest, was murdered.  It sent shockwaves through the boxing world and sports community.  We lost a great warrior who had a smile of an honest man and not a hardened thug. Yesterday, Jurors in Georgia found a man guilty for his role in the shooting death of Forrest.

Jquante Crews, a 28 year old man, who drove the get away car, received a sentence of life in prison without parole plus 10 years for his role in Forrest's death.  He is not the only bum to burned over such a stupid and outrageous crime.  Demario Ware has already been convicted and will spend a life sentence where he belongs... behind bars.  Ware was reportedly the first person to hold up a gun to Forrest, and ran off with a Rolex watch and a championship boxing ring that was on Forrest at the time of the crime. Forrest unfortunately gave chase to Ware, when he ran into a 3rd man, Charmon Sinkfield, the alleged gun man who's bullets killed Forrest.

The other two (Crews and Ware) are getting off easy, with jail time and a life to ponder their stupid mistakes, but Prosecutors will be seeking the death penalty against Sinkfield.  So two down and one to go. 

Greed, stupidity and a bunch of four letter words is all I can come up with when describing these rancid animals. A rolex watch and a championship ring are worth nothing when compared to a human life.

Who can not remember the class act in Forrest?  I mentioned his smile at the start of this piece... he had that million dollar smile.  He had amazing skills too.  The kind of skills that defeated a prime "Sugar" Shane Mosley and a style that always pleased the fans.  He is still sorely missed today.
