Weaver sentenced to 80 months in state prison
ENTERPRISE — Daniel Dalton Weaver, 24, of Wallowa, was sentenced to 80 months in state prison Monday morning by Judge Brian Dretke in Wallowa County Circuit Court.
The sentencing stemmed from a three-day trial held in November when Weaver was convicted of burglary, strangulation, menacing and tampering with a witness. He was found not guilty of rape, and Judge Dretke dismissed the charge of sexual assault. Before the trial, Weaver pled guilty to fourth-degree assault.
Defense Counsel Janie Burcart said she was concerned a long sentence would be detrimental for Weaver.
“I don’t want him to come out and hurt someone else,” she said.
When asked by Dretke if he had anything to say, Weaver said he wants better for himself.
“I plan to do good with my life,” he said. “I want to make amends.”
Weaver was given credit for 239 days served in Union County Jail toward his sentencing. He was scheduled to be transported to a state correctional facility on Wednesday.
