Jefferson County Judge overturns 99 year sentence and murder conviction of Quintez Nunn, who was 16 years old at the time of the shooting. Judge Steven Wallace stated in a 23 page order, "The Court understands that this is an extraordinary remedy and such a serious matter is not taken lightly. Nothing in this order precludes retrial of this matter or the charging of any other person or persons for offenses. In fact, for reasons not entirely clear, the capital murder prosecution against the far more culpable party, Nigel Sanders, was delayed by several years and ultimately dismissed without prejudice. Nunn, who by all accounts was the non-triggerman And merely present at the scene, is the only person to ever be convicted in regards to this tragic event.

Nethertheless, for the forgoing reasons, the conviction is hereby set aside and reversed, with a new trial to be set and ordered in due course
