A Kansas City man received a 30-year sentence Friday for his role in a fatal Christmas Eve shooting in 2011.
Dalvin D. Johnson, 21, was sentenced to 30 years for second-degree murder. Jackson County Circuit Judge W. Brent Powell also sentenced Johnson to 15 years for attempted robbery, as well as 10 years and five years for two armed criminal convictions.
All the sentences will run concurrently.
A Jackson County jury in February had found Johnson guilty of those four counts and recommended the same sentences.
Prosecutors said Johnson and Adrian M. Botello, along with two juveniles, plotted to rob Joseph T. Jones, 22, after luring him outside his home on Dec. 24, 2011. After a confrontation, Johnson shot Jones. Authorities found Jones’ body about 11:25 p.m. near 24th Street and Denver Avenue.
Botello pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and other charges in February. In March, he received several sentences on several charges, all amounting to 15 years in prison.
