LIMA — One of three Lima men charged with murder in the 2017 shooting death of Damere Oliphant outside an apartment off Shawnee Road pleaded guilty Monday morning to reduced charges that could cap the amount of time he spends in prison at 15 years.
Collin Dysert, 21, a graduate of Bath High School, accepted a deal from prosecutors that called for him to plead guilty to first-degree felony charges of involuntary manslaughter with a three-year firearm specification and kidnapping. In exchange for his plea, the state agreed to dismiss charges of murder and trafficking in drugs.
Allen County Prosecuting Attorney Juergen Waldick made a sentencing recommendation that calls for Dysert to serve four years in prison on the kidnapping charge and eight years behind bars for involuntary manslaughter. Those sentences would be served consecutively with a mandatory three-year sentence on the gun specification charge.
