CASEY: Judge rules home’s transfer was unlawful ‘gift’ and voids deed | Local News

And then on Sept. 17, 2018, King died at age 80 in a rehabilitation center in Salem. He had been ill for almost a year. And although his house was paid for, it didn’t wind up among King’s estate.

That’s because six months earlier, his live-in caretaker, Tracie Hernandez, had improperly deeded the house as a gift to a friend of hers, according to court papers. Hernandez did that using a power of attorney King Sr. had granted Hernandez in December 2017, to manage King’s financial affairs.

According to Roanoke’s real estate records, the home in question is brick, single-level, with 1,700 finished square feet not counting a 1,400-square-foot basement. Built in 1948, it has three bedrooms and two baths.

It stands on slightly less than an acre and has a detached garage. For tax purposes, the land and improvements are assessed at $101,000.

Ex-inmate Johnny ‘Crusher’ Jackson freed under First Step Act thanks judge in note touting clothing line whose name is said to refer to Gangster Disciples

Johnny “Crusher” Jackson took the unusual step of writing to a federal judge recently to thank him for releasing him from prison.

Jackson, who was once in the inner circle of Gangster Disciples founder Larry Hoover, told U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber he’s making the most of his freedom. He said he and his wife have a construction business, a nonprofit organization to help the underprivileged and a clothing line.

But it appears Jackson hasn’t completely turned his back on his past. The brand name for his sweatshirts and T-shirts — Gentlemen of Distinguished Nature — stands for Gangster Disciples Nation, according to prison officials.

Jackson was freed in November under the First Step Act. His thank-you note to the judge was filed into the court record Monday.

“I have worked tirelessly to make good on the promises I made to my wife, pastor and numerous others who are counting
