Circuit Judge Terrance Ketchel accepted Nunn’s plea and presided over his sentencing. Based on his prior record and recent release from prison, Nunn reportedly was designated as a Prison Releasee Reoffender, which means that he will serve his mandatory life sentence day-for-day, with no early release, said the State Attorney’s Office.
The investigation was conducted by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant State Attorney Leah Glisson prosecuted the case on behalf of Ginger Bowden Madden, State Attorney for the First Judicial Circuit of Florida.
