10 more years for Ozuna

YAKIMA - During his 2009 trial Adrian Bentura Ozuna, 26, of Sunnyside attempted to intimidate a witness testifying against him, according to Yakima County prosecutors.

That trial resulted in convicting Ozuna for robbery, attempting to elude police and second degree assault.

Earlier this month a jury convicted him for the crime of witness intimidation, as well as two aggravating gang factors. Yesterday a Yakima County judge sentenced Ozuna on the intimidation conviction to the maximum 10 years to be served consecutively with the 129-month sentence he is serving for his earlier conviction.

The original conviction stems from a 2008 case during which he led police on a high-speed pursuit after stealing a vehicle and displaying a firearm. At one point in the pursuit, Ozuna tried to assault a police officer with the vehicle.

He is also serving time for taking a motor vehicle without permission, residential burglary, felony drug charges and a drive-by shooting.
