YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Youngstown man was sentenced to 13 years in prison for the shooting death of a teenager.
Sir Wolfgang Green pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of 16-year-old Devon Bailey last year.
Green shot Bailey in the chest at a home on Youngstown’s south side. Bailey was a student at East High School.
Mahoning County Court Judge Jack Durkin said the one thing that troubled him was that Green was even around a gun, despite the fact that he was already a convicted felon.
“You’ve been to prison previously for possessing one, and we wouldn’t be here this morning if you didn’t put yourself in a position, even accidentally, to have that one discharge,” he said.
