A Baltimore man who in 2004 was shot twice by police officers was sentenced to 35 years in prison yesterday in an armed robbery of a restaurant that was interrupted by a Maryland Transit Administration officer, according to city prosecutors.
Jurors were unable to reach a verdict for Dale Fauntleroy in January 2005, and a judge declared a hung jury. Prosecutors retried the case and got a conviction Feb. 1 on charges of conspiracy to commit robbery and armed robbery.
Police said the MTA officer, Orlando Bordley, exchanged gunfire with Fauntleroy and another man as they ran from the robbery scene in October 2004, hitting Fauntleroy in the buttocks. Fauntleroy had been shot in both legs in August by a Maryland Transportation Authority officer during an exchange of gunfire in Northwest Baltimore, police said.
Fauntleroy has a lengthy criminal record that includes 11 arrests. In 2004, prosecutors dropped an attempted murder charge against him after witnesses could not be found. Also in 2004, they dropped a murder charge against him, again noting witness problems.
