Carjacking and Firearms Conviction

Albert Eugene Dunn, age 26 of Valdosta, Georgia, was found guilty on May 10,2010 after a five-day federal jury trial in Valdosta, Georgia. Dunn was convicted on three counts of carjacking and four counts of federal firearm violations which involved two separate home invasions.

The evidence introduced at trial showed that Dunn, with the help of an accomplice, invaded the homes of college students through the use of firearms and knives. He then demanded valuables and took vehicles belonging to the victims with the intent to cause death and serious bodily injury. In one instance, the jury found that the intended serious bodily injury included Dunn causing another person to engage in a sexual act by using force. The Honorable Louis Sands, U.S. District Judge, presided over the trial. Sentencing will be scheduled by the Court at a later date.
