Janet Jackson told her former husband she was willing to reconcile arranged for a meeting. When he showed up, he was beaten with a metal pipe and his wallet was stolen, to convince the police that a random robbery had been committed. Jackson then had her accomplices beat her, so as to also appear as a victim of her former husband's assailants. Jackson was sentenced to life in prison. The two men she convinced to do the crime received a life sentence and 17-year sentence respectively. Jackson has also applied for clemency on several other occasions.
