The Office of State Attorney Glenn Hess announced that on Tuesday March 28, 2017, Circuit Judge Shonna Young Gay sentenced Ricky Leon Wynn, Jr. to serve twenty five years in the Florida Department of Corrections after a jury convicted Wynn last month of Aggravated Battery with a Firearm. The sentence imposed by Judge Gay was pursuant to Florida’s 10/20/Life Statute. Wynn will be required to serve every day of the twenty-five year sentence imposed, because that is the minimum mandatory sentence required by law.
Assistant State Attorneys, Ana Maria Garcia & Tyler Land, proved to jurors that Wynn, 31, of Marianna, Florida battered a victim on May 14, 2016 while at Club Secrets in Marianna. After an argument between Wynn and the victim, Wynn later armed himself with a firearm and clubbed the victim over the head with the firearm, which caused it to discharge injuring another club patron. The club patron that was shot was taken to Jackson Hospital and later transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital due to the seriousness of the injuries. The case was investigated by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
