Circuit Judge Vernon Miniard Junior sentenced Jimmy Massengale to
12 years on Tuesday, September 23rd in connection with the 2012
shooting death of Roger Dean.

a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. He was sentenced to 12 years on

The three counts of Wanton Endangerment were dismissed. Massengale
will be committed to the custody of the Cabinet for Corrections and will
be credited with the time spent in custody prior to the commencement
of Tuesday's sentencing. He will also pay restitution in an amount to be determined by the Commonwealth and will not be released from
probation and or parole until the restitution is paid in full and a release
from supervision is authorized by the court. << Return to PreviousIf you copy this article to a blog or forum, please leave the identification of the source (wkym.com) in the text.
