“Ms. Wilkins accepts full responsibility, ” said her attorney, James Thomas, about his client’s coercion plea. “She’s certainly not responsible for the actions that her son took.” Thomas says his client has five prior felonies, but he’s still hoping she gets a fair sentence. “I believe that four of those felonies should be considered as one felony because they were all allegedly committed within a 24-hour period,” he said. — Attorney James Thomas, Memphis, TN
