Dallas Drug Dealer Gets 60 Years Imprisonment for Killing Teen


A Dallas drug dealer has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for killing an 18-year-old outside of a Fort Worth motel after the teenager allegedly tried to buy marijuana from him with fake money.

The Dallas Drug Dealer was Convicted

Police were called to the Drummers Inn in the 7300 block of Camp Bowie West Boulevard at about 11:15 PM on the 27th of July 2018, where they found 18-year-old Jaimone Joubert dead from a gunshot wound to the chest.

His drug dealer, Kourtney Deonte Johnson, 27, was convicted of murder Thursday morning by a Tarrant County jury, the same jury that sentenced him that afternoon.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Johnson had arranged to sell Joubert an ounce of marijuana for $200 over a social media app.

Johnson told police that he believed the victim was a woman, and officers observed that the victim was dressed as a woman when they arrived to investigate.

The convicted murderer’s affidavit also narrated that the victim entered his vehicle in the parking lot of the motel and gave him two $100 bills in exchange for an ounce of marijuana.

However, when he turned the bills over, he said that they “did not feel right” and “they had some sort of Chinese symbol on the back,” the affidavit says.

He said he tried to chase after Joubert but the teen had vanished. He also denied having a gun, the affidavit says.

Surveillance video told a different story, however. According to the affidavit, the footage showed Johnson get out of his vehicle and chase Joubert around the parking lot, firing several shots from a pistol.

Joubert died at the scene from a gunshot wound in the chest.

Johnson was arrested three days later after detectives determined that Joubert had called his phone number to set up the drug deal. He remained in custody at the Tarrant County Jail until his trial. His bail is set at $100,000.

His record includes convictions in Dallas County on charges of assault, criminal trespass, marijuana possession, theft and unlawful carrying of a weapon.

He has filed an appeal of the murder conviction, court records indicate.
