The Florida man found guilty of shooting and killing an unarmed black teen outside a Jacksonville gas station is being sent to prison for the rest of his life with no chance of parole. Michael Dunn was also sentenced to 105-years in prison for trying to kill the three friends who were with Jordan Davis on the night they argued over loud music.
At Friday morning's sentencing hearing, the mother of the murdered 17-year-old was in tears as she told Dunn that she forgave him. Dunn apologized to Davis's family, saying he was mortified by taking a life, whether it was justified or not.
In his first trial, Dunn was convicted of shooting at three teens who were with Jordan Davis on the night he was killed in November of 2010. The jury deadlocked on the murder charge, prompting a retrial where he was found guilty of first-degree murder. Dunn has always maintained that the shooting was an act of self-defense. His lawyers plan to appeal his conviction.
