Sentencing Complete in 2 of 4 Defendants in Beumer Case





After reviewing all facts of State of Indiana vs. Eric Weston Dunn, Judge Les Shively ordered Dunn to a sentence of 6 years, the first three to be served at the Indiana Department of Corrections and the balance to be served on probation. Dunn has already spent time in jail before he was bonded out (276) days, and has spent time on Electronic Home Monitoring. Under Indiana’s “good time” statute, Dunn will now serve around six months in jail before being placed on probation for the remainder of his sentence (three additional years), assuming no other issues arise.
