“We have no doubt that in a review petition [Dooley] Will be found guilty again, and he will be sentenced, but his lawyers will request bond, and he will be out of jail again,” Urge said in a statement Tuesday after hearing Dooley’s plea on Facebook.
“Then we’ll wait a few more years, and then we’ll finally wait for him to go to jail, and his lawyers will probably make a motion that he not go to jail because of his old age or whatever. But, bottom line, he’ll go to jail again. Will never go to jail.”
A Florida court initially found Dole guilty in 2012 and sentenced him to eight years in prison but was granted bond in 2013 to await his appeal. Dooley began serving his prison sentence in 2014 before finally being given a new trial in 2019.

Urez said America’s “justice system is very poor,” and accepting Dooley’s plea was a way for her family to get the “closure and justice” they needed more than a decade after James’ murder.

Dole, who lived at Varico Park where Danielle and David James were playing basketball, on September 26, 2010, began a dispute with the veteran over a skateboarder who was using the other side of the basketball court. A conflict ensued, and according to the testimony of James’ family and witness, Dooley fatally shot James in the chest.
Danielle James, now 20, described Dooley as “a coward with a shotgun” who ruined her childhood “without reason or justification” in her statement.
“I don’t deserve to be upset even after I’ve told my story twice,” she said in her statement. “I am telling this now so that people know what really happened to the person who fought for his freedom and the family who never got justice.”
