PHOENIX — A man acquitted in the fatal shooting of two bail bondsmen at a Phoenix apartment complex has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for other offenses.
Anthony Giunta was sentenced Friday for narcotics and dangerous drug violations plus misconduct involving weapons and aggravated assault.
Phoenix police say bondsmen David Brickert and Wesley Kampen were trying to arrest Giunta in April 2013 for missing a court hearing in a case that involved weapons and drug charges.
Prosecutors say Giunta was being handcuffed by the bondsmen when a co-defendant shot them.
Jurors couldn’t reach a verdict in co-defendant Nicholas Malicki’s first-degree murder trial that ended two months ago.
Giunta was convicted of resisting arrest, but found not guilty on two counts of second-degree murder and one count of aggravated assault.
