Milwaukee - On Friday, Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Richard J. Sankovitz sentenced Jesus Gonzalez, 24, to 25 years in prison. Gonzalez will only be confined to 20 years and will serve five years probation for the May 8, 2010 homicide of Danny John, 29, and shooting of his nephew, Jered Corn, 22, at the 3300 block of W. National Ave.
In October, Gonzalez was convicted for first-degree reckless homicide and first-degree reckless injury. Gonzalez actually got 25 years in prison for the reckless homicide and 10 years concurrent for the reckless injury count.
According to the criminal complaint, both John and Corn were drinking all day and had just left Mamie's tavern on W. National Ave. and S. Shea Ave. when an apparent altercation with Gonzalez occurred. John was driving his Honda Accord out of Mamie's tavern when Gonzalez fired his weapon at least seven shots hitting John four times and striking Corn in the neck paralyzing him for life.
