Da’Mari Barnes Sentencing

In Court: The sentencing of Da’Mari Barnes, 17, is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. in Courtroom 401 before Circuit Judge Terence Perkins at the Flagler County courthouse. Barnes pleaded last October to manslaughter in the February 2022 shooting death of Jamey Bennett, 19, at a bonfire party near Matanzas High School. Perkins will have wide discretion, sentencing Barnes either as a juvenile offender, in which case he would face up to six years in prison, or as an adult, with sentencing guidelines calling for a minimum of 11.5 years in state prison, and a maximum of 30. See: “Da’mari Barnes, 17, Pleads Out in Shooting Death of Jamey Bennett, 19; Uncertain Sentence Pending.”
