Slim Dunkin Killer Acquitted; Gets 25 Years On Other Charges

Slim Dunkin

The man accused of shooting aspiring rapper Skim Dunkin to death in 2011, will spend the next 25 years in jail, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Vinson Hardimon, aka Young Vito, was found not guilty of Slim Dunkin’s murder by a Fulton County jury on Monday.

In December 2011, Hardimon and Dunkin, real name Mario Hamilton, allegedly fought over a piece of candy in an Atlanta recording studio, before Hardimon left the studio and returned with a handgun.

On Monday, Hardimon was convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a handgun during the commission of a felony for the altercation that ended in Slim Dunkin’s death.

From the AJC.com:

When handing down the maximum sentence, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Craig Schwall pointed to a gun incident involving Hardimon, 29, eight months before Hamilton’s death.

“I just think he’s prone to carry a gun, and he’s violent and dangerous,” Schwall said.

Hamilton’s father, Mark Hamilton, voiced his displeasure with the murder and felony murder acquittals, but facing the recent death of his mother on Sunday, expressed some relief that the trial was over and Hardimon would get jail time.
“I’m disappointed with that verdict,” Hamilton said. “I don’t know what (the jury) saw. In the end, he got 25 years and we can have some closure.”
