SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Sentencing for Roger and Nicole Dunn has been pushed back. The assistant district attorney handling the case was unable to tell us why the sentencing needed to be pushed back.
The defense and the DA’s office were both in agreement with the change.
Roger and Nicole Dunne both pleaded guilty back in March, admitting they were door-to-door to falsely collect hundreds of dollars in donations in the name of Kaylee Marshfield, a little girl who was fighting cancer at the time.
Kaylee’s parents waited patiently in the courtroom to see the Dunns sentenced, only to see it delayed.
Kaylee’s mom tells us they will be back in August to see the case through.
“It’s just been, you know, a rollercoaster, since they were all initially arrested, but we respect the courts and their decisions. Justice will be served at some point,” said Kristina Crosley Marshfield, Kaylee’s mom. “It’s just the principle of the matter that something, especially what they did, shouldn’t go unpunished, no matter what the sentence.”
Kaylee’s mom tells us she’s doing great, enjoying school and looking forward to summer plans.
The Dunns are due back in court in early August. Roger Dunn is facing eight weekends in jail and Nicole Dunn is facing two weekends in jail. Both will have five years of probation.
