|~ Jingles when Jimmy confronts him with the knife.|
Jingles is the secondary antagonist of the 1989 thiller film An Innocent Man. He is the violent, sadistic and dangerous leader of a black gang of prisoners belonging to the Black Guerrilla Family movement.
He was portrayed by Bruce A. Young.
A man thirsty for violence as all of his comrades, Jingles targets Jimmy Rainwood (the protagonist of the film imprisoned with false evidence) for no particular reason, insulting him, rubbing a bag containing toothpaste, soap and a toothbrush, and when the man protests, intimidating him and making him understand that if he talks to the prison guards of the harassment received by the group, they could make him pay. Other detainees - especially Virgil Cane - advise Jimmy to kill Jingles, as only his death can convince the group of delinquents to leave him in peace, but Jimmy does not feel that he commits a murder, with the result that Jingles provocations they are getting more and more anxious.
After reacting to Jingles's claim to give him all the money his wife brings to each visit, Jimmy is beaten wildly by Jingles and his friends and sentenced to 15 days of isolation for refusing to report it to the prison director.
After the end of the punishment, Jimmy is again threatened by Jingles: he and his friends force him to witness a rape on the part of the gang to the detritment of a prisoner delivered to them by another gang and promise him very soon what they will do it will be much worse. This convinces Jimmy to plan Jingles' murder.
With the help of Virgil and some of his friends, Jimmy succeeds in separating Jingles from the rest of his gang and faces him with a craft knife made from a piece of plexiglas.
Finding himself face to face with his enemy, initially Jimmy has hesitations, which raises Jingles's laughs but when Jingles attacks him, Jimmy finds the courage to react, knocking Jingles into his stomach, killing him.
