Michael Dunn Lands Life Without Parole For ‘Loud Music’ Shooting Of Jordan Davis
The Florida man convicted of first-degree murder for the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis in November 2012 following an argument over loud music, will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Dunn was sentenced to life without parole on Friday (Oct. 17), nearly two years after the incident. He received 90 years for three convictions of attempted murder and an additional 15 for firing a weapon into a vehicle, according to NBC News.
“Our justice system works,” Judge Russell Healey said at the sentencing. “This case demonstrates that our justice system does work.”
A jury found Dunn guilty of murdering Davis, who was black, earlier this month. Prosecutors did not seek the death penalty.
