Ozello man gets 45 years in his resentencing

Published Aug. 28, 2005

Derrick Ellis will serve 45 years in prison for attempted sexual battery, aggravated battery and robbery with a weapon, instead of his original life sentence.

After an appeals court decision, Circuit Judge Ric A. Howard resentenced Ellis on Wednesday.

Ellis, 40, of Ozello, is serving an additional five-year term for striking a corrections officer at the Citrus County Jail, court records showed. Ellis originally was sentenced in 1990 to life plus 30 years in prison.
