Dana Nunnally

HARRISBURG, Pa. –   A Dauphin County jury convicted Dana Nunnally on Wednesday, of Simple Assault and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  Furthermore, Dauphin County Judge William T. Tully also found Nunnally guilty of Possession of a Small Amount of Marijuana arising from the same incident.

Last June, Nunnally was in his kitchen smoking marijuana with his daughter.  The victim, Nunnally’s girlfriend, became upset about Nunnally and his daughter smoking marijuana.  Her objection to the marijuana smoking led to a verbal argument between Nunnally and the victim.

Nunnally confronted his girlfriend about her objections and asked her, “You got anything to say?”  The argument quickly escalated and Nunnally put the victim in a headlock and repeatedly punched her in the head causing multiple lacerations with blood.

The victim reported to the police that Nunnally’s daughter was standing nearby, laughing, while Nunnally assaulted her.  The victim got away, ran onto the porch, and called 911.  She remained on the porch until the police arrived. When police searched the residence they found a plastic baggie with a small amount of marijuana inside of it.
