Carjacking suspect settles case
January 10, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A teen carjacking suspect accused of kidnapping a car seller with a fake gun and driving the bound man around Daly City while demanding his pink slip was immediately sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading no contest to multiple felonies.

Jeremy Jenkins, 21, has credit of roughly two years against his two-decade term on 11 charges including carjacking, robbery, felony threats, kidnapping, assault, false imprisonment and attempted felony imprisonment.

Prosecutors say Jenkins carjacked the seller of a Mustang after responding to the man’s Craigslist ad April 23, 2012. After returning to the Daly City BART station from the test drive, Jenkins allegedly pulled a replica handgun and ordered the 26-year-old man to handcuff himself. Jenkins pulled a pillowcase over the man’s head and placed him in the back seat and demanded the pink slip, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

When the man said the pink slip was at home, Jenkins allegedly drove around for 20 minutes before pulling into a garage and having the man call his mother. The woman, sensing something was amiss when asked to bring the pink slip to the BART station, called 911. The police waited at the BART parking lot and, when Jenkins arrived, detained him at gunpoint. After his arrest, Jenkins told authorities he made “a stupid mistake,” according to prosecutors.

After his arrest, Jenkins’ defense questioned his competency but two of three court-appointed doctors found him able to aid in his own defense.
