In Wayne County, a significant legal decision was reached as 43-year-old Jamison Emanuel was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the attempted murder of Laura Breen. The sentencing follows an incident in December 2022, where Emanuel engaged in a dangerous confrontation, firing shots at Breen from his vehicle. Miraculously, Breen escaped the attack unharmed.


The case rapidly progressed after State Police recovered an illegal firearm discarded by Emanuel during his attempt to evade law enforcement. This pivotal evidence contributed to the charges against him, leading to his conviction.

This sentencing underscores the judicial system’s commitment to public safety and the serious consequences facing those who commit violent crimes. Emanuel’s incarceration serves as a stern warning against such acts, ensuring that justice is served for the attempted harm to Laura Breen.
