Young Dolph murder suspect sentenced to 2 years in prison


Justin Johnson, one of the men charged with the murder of the late Young Dolph, recently pleaded guilty to federal offenses, according to Action News 5. At a hearing on Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to not being regularly employed, to missing mandatory drug screenings and therapy sessions, failing to ask permission before leaving the jurisdiction and being arrested.

The latest two violations relate to Justin’s arrest in January, which resulted in local charges being filed against him in the Dolph case. As we reported, Justin, aka Straight Drop, was arrested by US Marshals after a vehicle he was traveling in was stopped in Indiana. Justin, who had been on the run for over a month, was hit with various charges related to Dolph’s death. The charges include first degree murder, attempted first degree murder and theft of property worth $10,000 to $60,000.

Cornelius Smith is also charged with first degree murder in Dolph’s death, while Shundale Barnett, who was apprehended with Justin, has been charged as an afterthought accessory to first degree murder. Justin was the only suspect to appear in court and a federal judge said he was “bitterly disappointed” with Justin during the hearing. Judge Mark Norris said the 23-year-old “wasted the opportunities the court gave him”.

Justin made a remark during the hearing that he was ready to put the case behind him as he has “a lot of stuff with other charges.” At this time, no further information is available on the sentencing of any of the Young Dolph murder suspects, but we will update you as more information becomes available!
