TRIAL UPDATE: Gunter sentenced to 30 years

Posted on 04 Mar 2009 at 6:29pm

Jonathan Russell Gunter has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after being found guilty earlier today in a Dallas County court of first degree aggravated robbery in connection with a brutal assault on Jimmy Lee Dean last July on an Oak Lawn street.

Dallas Voice News Editor John Wright, who attended the trial this week, said the sentence was less than the 40 years the prosecution had asked for, but more than the 5-to-10-year sentence requested by Gunter’s attorney.

Wright’s complete report on the trial and its outcome will be posted on DallasVoice.com later this evening. Watch Instant Tea for a link to the story.
