LEONARDTOWN, MD. – The sentencing of a dirtbag currently residing in the St. Mary’s County Jail will soon be trucked off to the Maryland prison system to spend the next twenty years after being sentenced by St. Mary’s County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Stanalonis. Justin Tyler Dunbar was convicted of three times sexually assaulting the same child in St. Mary’s County, Maryland.
Court records in Burnett County, Wisconsin, the former residence of Dunbar, show that Dunbar was sought after by the Wisconsin Child Support Agency and Nicole Marie Lindberg to pay child support with a hearing scheduled for October 12, 2023.
A proposed order of child support enforcement for the maintenance of Adrian Lee Dunbar was set for Sept. 13, 2023, with court records acknowledging that Dunbar is currently incarcerated in the St. Mary’s County Jail.
Wisconsin Court records show that Dunbar previously lived at 512 N. Pine Street in Grantsburg, Wisconsin.
St. Mary’s County State’s Attorney Jaymi Sterling announced that Justin Tyler Dunbar, 34, of Grantsburg, Wisconsin, was sentenced to 20 years in the Division of Corrections, with ten years of active incarceration to serve in prison. Dunbar was convicted of three counts of felony sexual offense on the same child, with each act occurring on October 17, 2022.
A St. Mary’s County jury convicted Dunbar following a three-day jury trial in May 2023. Dunbar was sentenced as follows:
Sex Offense Third Degree – sentenced to the maximum penalty of ten years in prison.
Sex Offense Third Degree – sentenced to ten years, suspended, to run consecutively; and
Sex Offense Third Degree – sentenced to ten years, suspended, to run consecutively.
Dunbar must register as a sex offender for life and will be subject to lifetime sexual offender supervision.
According to Sterling, Maryland Sentencing Guidelines called for a sentence between a range of three months and four years. At sentencing, the State requested Dunbar to 30 years of active incarceration in prison, all to run consecutively, which is the maximum penalty by law.
Sterling reported that Detective James Bare of the Criminal Investigation Division of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Department was the lead investigator, and Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Sarah Proctor, Chief of the Special Victims Unit, prosecuted the case.
