“Mt. Hermon Shooters” Crimes Not Considered Crimes of Violence

As reported yesterday (November 26, 2018), Dakota Tetreau, Bailey Koon and Desmond Warren (aka
the Mt. Hermon shooters), were sentenced by Judge Alan Zaunbrecher.  Each received the same sentence. The overall sentence for each translates into ten years with five suspended. Each will receive credit for time already served in the Washington Parish Jail and will serve a three year period of probation after completing their respective prison sentences.

In addition to the sentence, each defendant was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $11,491.04, as well as fine in the amount of $1,000 plus court cost. Dakota Tetreau was ordered to pay a one time fee of $200 to the Public Defender.

Interestingly, as part of the negotiated plea agreement between the District Attorney and the defendants and, as reflected in the sentencing minutes, their crimes would not be considered crimes of violence.

Each defendant has been transferred to a Department of Corrections facility.

Sheriff Randy Seal commented, "The sentencing should bring some closure to the Mt. Hermon community, and particularly the families that were directly affected by the actions of these three young men. Their behavior, fueled by very poor choices, will have a lasting impact on their lives as well as the lives of all who were traumatized by the shootings. I am pleased that our officers were able to solve this difficult case."
