In July 2019, Dorsey took a plea deal and plead guilty to her murder.

He was sentenced to life in prison, but Farrow’s family left the sentencing hearing unsatisfied. Russell County District Attorney Kenneth Davis said there could have been a different outcome if three eyes witnesses would have cooperated with the court.

“If they had been here and had been voluntarily cooperating witnesses, we’d be at trial right now for the death penalty in this case,” said Davis.

Family members said they wanted the death penalty in the case. Farrows mother said the sentence was the second hardest day of her life, behind the day she buried her daughter.

Dorsey is currently serving his sentence at the Elmore Correctional Facility.
