John Dungan was sentenced to three consecutive 15-years-to-life prison sentences for intentionally causing a vehicle collision on Highway 154 that killed three people.
The Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office announced he was convicted of three counts of second-degree murder this August.
Prosecutors stated that Dungan was driving 119 mph into oncoming traffic on October 25, 2019. They argued he intentionally crashed his Chevy Camaro into a Chevy Volt carrying Vanessa Bley and her two children.
Bley and her 2-year-old Lucienne Bley Gleason and 4-month-old Desmond Bley Gleason were killed instantly.
“Dungan set off a chain of events that showcased the most despicable and downright evil display imaginable,” said Stephen Wagner, Deputy District Attorney for Santa Barbara County. “His actions were methodical and meticulously executed.”
Bley’s family requested three consecutive sentences representing each life that was taken.
