A Garland man was sentenced to 30 years in prison today for his role in what prosecutors called an anti-gay attack last year in Oak Lawn.
Jonathan Gunter had faced up to life in prison after being convicted of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
On Tuesday, the victim, Jimmy Lee Dean, 43, testified that he was knocked unconscious during the attack in July 2008 and remembers little of what happened. Gunter, 32, and another man, Bobby Singleton, were both accused in the attack. Singleton is awaiting trial.
Today, Dean said that the jury’s verdict “works out OK.” See Garland man gets 30 years for Oak Lawn anti-gay attack
