Wisner Desmaret has been sentenced to life in prison without any chance for parole for the 2018 murder of Fort Myers Police Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller.

Judge Robert Branning handed down the sentence at a hearing Monday, just before 3:30 p.m.

Officers said Desmaret’s sentencing offers a sense of closure they have waited for since 2018, for the death of FMPD Officer Jobbers-Miller. The death penalty was sought in this case, but the punishment will be respected, said law enforcers.

“Adam’s heroic actions in a dangerous and erratic situation exemplified what it is to be a law enforcement officer, and he will forever be remembered,” State Attorney Amira Fox said during a news conference after the sentencing.
