A teenager whose case got a lot of attention last May following a shooting on Manhattan’s north side was sentenced Monday morning to an underlying sentence of 25 months with the Kansas Department of Corrections and placed on probation for 18 months. Daeshawn Bryant of Manhattan was ordered to serve 60 days as a condition of probation.
Bryant was originally charged with aggravated battery with a firearm in connection with the shooting of Dareen Starks,23, of Manhattan, who required treatment for several days following. But that charge and others were dropped as the case reportedly involved self-defense.
Bryant ended up only facing charges of conspiracy to distribute marijuana and felony in possession of a firearm in connection with the case.
