Michael Dunn gets LIFE in Prison!

Michael Dunn (pictured above) was sentenced to life in prison (without parole), after being convicted of first-degree murder for fatally shooting Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store.

Dunn tried to stand behind the “Stand your ground” law but the life sentence imposed by Circuit Judge Russell Healey was mandatory for the 47-year-old cold-blooded killer, since prosecutors decided not to seek the death penalty.

“Mr. Dunn, your life is effectively over,” Healey said. “What is sad … is that this case exemplifies that our society seems to have lost its way.”

Evidence showed that Dunn, of Satellite Beach, fired the shots during a heated argument over the volume of music coming from the SUV carrying Davis and three other teenagers. Dunn was convicted of three counts of second-degree murder in his first trial because he continued to fire into the Dodge Durango as the driver tried to flee. Healey on Friday sentenced him to a minimum of 60 years in prison for those charges, to be served consecutively with the life sentence.

Supporters of Jordan Davis and his family filled rows of the courtroom, and many broke into tears, sometimes sobs, as his parents and other family members told Healey how devastating his death had been.

Davis’ mother, Lucia McBath said she always taught her son to love and to forgive.

“Therefore, I too must be willing to forgive and so I choose to forgive you Mr. Dunn for taking my son’s life,” McBath said in court.

Jordan Davis’ father, Ronald Davis, spoke tearfully of holding his son when he was born, then kissing his body one last time at the hospital the night of his death.

“I gave him his first kiss when he came into this world and I could never have imagined giving him his last kiss,” Davis said. “Our family has lost the biggest and the brightest smile of all of us.”

  1. This man was arrested based on probable cause, tried in a court of law, and found guilty by a jury of his peers. A sentence was imposed by a judge in the State of Florida. While nothing can bring back young Jordan Davis, justice was served, and the legal process worked. I applaud Lucia McBath for having the courage to forgive the accused, that has to be hard!

    • Adriane,
      Mr. Dunn said he made a mistake.??? No, he did not make a mistake. A mistake is turning right when you should have turned left. A mistake is getting onion rings when you ordered fries. Mr Dunn did not make a “mistake”, he made a decision. Now he will DIE behind bars.

        “Dunn never called 911 after firing into the SUV, and afterward he went back to his hotel, made a drink, ordered pizza, walked his dog and went to sleep.”

        This to me is the most telling part. If he truly felt like his life was in danger, he would of panicked, called 911, begging for someone to come and help. Instead he fires his gun 10 TIMES into a vehicle and then gets back in his car and drives away? I would have voted to convict his ass as well.

      • “I am mortified that I took a life whether it was a justified or not.”

        This is NOT an apology but this is what Dunn said @ his sentencing today.

        Dunn, couldn’t deal with the fact that a black kid didn’t give him the ‘respect’ he thought he was somehow due as a white guy and killed said kid for it and endangered multiple other lives. So now Dunn is going where he belongs…behind bars for the rest of his pathetic life. Bet the other inmates won’t show him much respect either.

  6. His punishment is perfect. He took a life over loud music. What if someone hit your car and you became angry, do you have the right to shoot and kill them? So, if someone is yelling and you don’t like it, you get to shoot them? No! You get convicted of murder and go to jail!! Good for his azz.
