JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man receives 15 years in prison in connection to the death of a Clay County Detective.
According to a State Attorney press release, 20-year-old Curtis Dinger pleaded guilty last month to the charge of dealing in stolen property. The stolen property was a gun used in the death of Clay County Detective David White.
Dinger was also sentenced on other charges not related to White's death including 15 years in prison on a count of possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and five years each on two counts of sale of cannabis. Also, Dingler is serving time served for possession of controlled substance paraphernalia.
The sentences are to run concurrently, the release said.
In June, Dingler's co-defendant, Curtis Henderson, pleaded guilty to a charge of dealing in stolen property and received two years in prison. In May, two other co-defendants in the stolen gun case. Robert Apple II and Jack Lemond, pleaded guilty to a count of dealing in stolen property and both received seven years in prison.
The gun was stolen in Jacksonville, in May 2011. It was provided to Ted Tilley who shot Det. White during a narcotics investigation last year. Tilley was also killed during the incident.
Four individuals are charged in White's murder: Ryan Christopher Wilder, Chasity E. Prescott, Jennifer S. Alder and Jerry Fred Daniels, a minor. Daniels is charged with third degree murder and possession with intent to sell.
Wilder, Prescott and Alder are charged with first degree murder, second degree felony murder, three counts of second degree attempted murder and trafficking methamphetamine. Prescott is also charged with burglary of a dwelling.
