A Kansas man who stole the wedding ring off of an unconscious mom’s finger as she lay dying in a Taco Bell drive-thru will spend more than 11 years behind bars.
Daquantrius Johnson will serve the 136-month sentence on top of other prison terms for crimes he committed in 2013, the Wichita Eagle reported. The 21-year-old will be locked up for more than 20 years altogether. Johnson was convicted of aggravated burglary, robbery and misdemeanor theft last December for stealing from Danielle Zimmerman in December 2013.
Prosecutors said Johnson stole her purse and pulled the wedding ring off of her finger as she sat unconscious inside her car in a Wichita Taco Bell drive-thru. The 41-year-old mom of two suffered a brain aneurysm while picking up dinner for her family, and slammed her truck into the fast food chain’s speaker.
Johnson, along with two accomplices, raided her truck after the accident, prosecutors said. Zimmerman died in a hospital the next day.
Johnson’s accomplices — Keith Hickles and Quanique Thomas-Hameen — pleaded guilty to their parts in the crime and received nine and 19 months in prison respectively. Johnson insisted he was not involved.
While police found Zimmerman’s purse abandoned on the side of the road, her wedding ring was never recovered.
“I hope you reflect on your crime you committed every day while you’re in prison. Dani didn’t deserve this to happen to her. She was a kind and compassionate person,” her husband Kris Zimmerman said in court Monday.
He continued: “I hope when you are released you become a productive member of our society. I would think you would want your children to admire you, not be ashamed of you.”
Mr. Zimmerman was far too kind – I’m afraid I would have had much harsher words for this punk. If by productive he means a drug peddling baby daddy, then yes, he’ll be productive – if he lives to get out, that is.
Rather than try to help this poor woman he takes her ring and purse. What a lowlife piece of filth this guy is – his mother must be so proud.
And speaking of mother, who in their right mind names a kid Daquantrius? And Quanique ?? Those aren’t names – it’s just a bunch of vowels bunched together!
In case you hadn’t already guess it, here’s a picture of the slimeball-
