The killer of Washington, D.C. transgender woman Bella Evangelista will serve 16 years and eight months for the crime, the Gay and Lesbian Liaison Unit of the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department reported in 2005. According to the GLLU report, District of Columbia Superior Court Judge John Bayly on Dec. 16 sentenced Antoine Jacobs to prison time, followed by five-years supervised probation, for second-degree murder. Sentencing guidelines called for a sentence of 10 to 24 years. Jacobs shot Evangelista in August 2003 at the corner of Alison and 14th streets NW. He killed her after first paying her for oral sex, then later learning she was biologically male, according to case reports.
