ALBANY, Ga. — Desmond Muff was sentenced to 30 years on Monday in connection to a shooting outside Monroe High School last year.
Muff was arrested in connection to a shooting that took place just after classes let out at the school on Oct. 21, 2011, reports show. Matt Breedon, chief assistant district attorney with the Dougherty Judicial Circuit, said that the shooting stemmed from an argument that took place on school grounds.
Muff, who authorities said has connections with the Bloods gang, pulled out a gun and shot at Jamie Marshall, now 18. Marshall was not injured, Breedon said.
Muff has been sentenced to 30 years — with serving the first seven years in prison — after pleading guilty to charges including aggravated assault, carrying a weapon on school grounds and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, Breedon said.
There were three others arrested in connection to the shooting: Lentavious Morgan, Akeem Hines and William Davis. The cases for these defendents are still pending, Breedon said.
