GLEN BURNIE, MD - A judge told a Glen Burnie man that "society has no place for an individual like him" before
sentencing him to 50 years in prison for fatally shooting a man outside a bar.
Circuit Court Judge Paul Hackner sentenced 30-year-old Ricco Clifton Gough on Wednesday. Gough was convicted in May of second-degree murder and weapons violations in the January 2009 shooting of 37-year-old Nathaniel Benjamin Wallace outside Dietrich's Tavern in Glen Burnie.
The shooting stemmed from a fight inside the crowded bar.
Wallace, a married father and stepfather of six children, was shot once in the chest.
