LIMA — Collin Dysert, one of three young Lima men charged in the 2017 shooting death of Damere Oliphant outside an apartment complex on Cam Court in Shawnee, had plenty to say in court Monday immediately prior to being sentenced to 15 years in prison in connection with Oliphant’s murder.
So, too, did the judge hearing the case. Prior to passing sentence, Allen County Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Reed said he is “really getting tired of sentencing people for homicides.” Reed sadly conceded, however, that “when young people get mixed up with drugs and guns, people are going to die.”
Dysert was the first of the three co-defendants to accept a deal from prosecutors in connection with the March 27, 2017 shooting death of Oliphant. Gavin R. Lauck, 20, and Dalton Duncan, 20,both of Lima, are also charged with murder, involuntary manslaughter, trafficking in drugs and kidnapping — all with firearm specifications — in connection with the incident.
