76-year prison term for convicted killer DuShawn Johnson

A botched drive-by shooting that took a life has landed a Kankakee man in prison for 76 years. DuShawn Johnson was sentenced Wednesday in Kankakee Circuit Court.

Judge Clark Erickson imposed the sentence for the shooting death of Maria O'Connor four years ago. The young woman was killed by gang crossfire while walking home from a job interview.

The 76-year prison term comes after two trials and a conviction on all charges. Johnson's co-defendant was convicted earlier and received a 58-year prison term.
