Fruita School Gun Violator Gets 2 Year Sentence, DA Sending Weapons Message

A 14–year–old boy charged with bringing guns to Fruita Middle School in November of last year will spend the next two years in a Colorado juvenile facility. Aaron Dicamillo pleaded guilty to possession of a handgun Tuesday morning at the Mesa County Justice Center. It was his second gun offense.

The Mesa County District Attorney's office decided to charge Dicamillo as an adult, because of both the severity of the crime and the level of his involvement. Dicamillo will serve two years in Department of Youth Correctional Facility.

Deputy District Attorney Craig Henderson said the sentence will hopefully be a wake–up call for Dicamillo. Henderson also said the severity of Dicamillo's sentence should send a message that bringing weapons to school will not be tolerated.
