Vancouver man convicted of stranger attacks sentenced

first_imgIn an apparent surprise to his defense attorney, a Vancouver man convicted of attacking two female strangers asked the judge Friday to sentence him to the highest penalty under law.“Go ahead and give me the high,” D’Shawn Carr said, interrupting his defense attorney, David Kurtz, when he asked the judge for a lower sentence at the defendant’s sentencing hearing.“OK, I’ll go with what my client wants — he wants 184 months,” Kurtz said.“I truly feel bad for what I’ve done,” Carr said, choking up. “That’s why I’m asking for the high end so I can prove my sincerity.”Clark County Superior Court Judge Rich Melnick granted his request. He sentenced 22-year-old Carr — who pleaded guilty to first-degree rape and unlawful imprisonment for attacking the women in Hazel Dell last winter — to life in prison with a minimum of 15 years.After 15 years, Carr’s case will go before an Indeterminate Sentencing Review Board, which will decide whether the defendant can be released. If he is freed, he will be under community supervision for the rest of his life.last_img read more
