Onstott Sentenced to Life

people having an argument

Yesterday, David Lee Onstott was sentence to life in prison. Three years ago, he murdered Sarah Lunde, who was just 13 years old. The Tampa jury convicted Onstott of second-degree murder and battery. The convictions are less than what prosecutors sought, but there was no physical or forensic evidence to link Onstott to the crime.

There was a taped confession, but the Court threw the confession out. In the confession, Onstott admitted to strangling Sarah, though he could not remember where he strangled her. He then disposed of her body in an abandoned fishpond in Ruskin.

Client Reviews
William Moore saves the day once again... I can’t thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track...You’ll be glad he’s on your defense team, I guarantee it. Eric Bailey
William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
