JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As Michael Dunn sat behind bars in the days following the fatal shooting of 17 year old Jordan Davis, he dreaded what was to come.
“I'm not looking forward to spending the rest of my life in prison,” he told his fiancé Rhonda Rouer in a jailhouse phone calls released Thursday.
Dunn told Rouer that JSO detectives assumed he was guilty when he spoke to them for the first time, the day after the incident.
“They're just going, “’yeah, yeah, yeah, I've heard it before.’”
In court on February 12, Dunn testified that he told Rouer he saw a gun that night, but Rouer testified Dunn never mentioned a weapon.
The jailhouse calls suggest Dunn didn’t tell Rouer much at all.
“We didn't even talk about it,” said Rouer.
“I know,” he responded.
Dunn says he wishes he'd acted differently.
“I should’ve known just to get a different parking spot. I don't know why I didn't.”
He also insists he was acting in self-defense, and that the entire case was unfair.
“I'm sitting here stewing in my own juices cause I'm the ******* victim. I just chose not to be victimized.”
