Man convicted of murder Oakland security guard heading to prison for 65 years to life www.privateofficer.com
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that 20-year-old Dreshawn Lee was sentenced Tuesday in Alameda County Superior Court.
Prosecutors say the December 2009 killing stemmed from an incident three months earlier, when Lee walked up to a taco truck carrying a sawed-off shotgun. Gary Jackson, the security guard for the taco truck, identified Lee to police.
The charges in that incident were later dropped. But, prosecutors say, Lee retaliated by hatching a plan to ambush Jackson on a street corner. The 28-year-old victim was gunned down, and his girlfriend also was wounded.
In August, a jury found Lee guilty of first-degree murder, assault and weapons charges.
