Life without parole plus 50 years.

Judge C. Creed McGinley told a jury Saturday that Adams made a deal with prosecutors just minutes ahead of his sentencing hearing.
Under the agreement, Adams received a term of life without parole for Bobo's killing. He was sentenced to consecutive terms of 25 years on the kidnapping and rape counts.
McGinley told the jury that the deal with Adams was reached with "some reluctance."

SAVANNAH, Tenn. — An attorney is requesting a new trial for Zachary Adams, the man sentenced to life in prison plus 50 years for the kidnapping, rape and killing of nursing student Holly Bobo.

Dylan Adams won’t face death penalty in Holly Bobo case; trial set for May
By Bridget Chapman | WREG.com | November 14, 2017

HARDIN COUNTY, Tenn. — John Dylan Adams, one of the defendants accused of kidnapping, raping and murdering nursing student Holly Bobo, will not face the death penalty when he returns for his trial next year.

Adams was in court for a status hearing Tuesday and Judge C. Creed McGinley tentatively set a trial date for May 29. His next hearing is set for 10 a.m. Dec. 14.

"I have moved this case as quickly as I could considering the huge amounts of discovery," McGinley said. "Well over 100 agents worked on this and it's just mountains of discovery."

The next jury could come from from Chattanooga, where there has been relatively little coverage of the case, the judge said.

With the state taking the death penalty off the table, Adams faces a life sentence of 51 years if convicted.

The judge said he’ll be setting a cut-off date soon for when both sides could reach a plea agreement instead of going to trial.
Another man, Jason Autry, also faces charges in the death of Bobo, who was killed in 2011 in Decatur County, Tennessee.

The Fate Of The Final Defendant In The Holly Bobo Murder Case
By Nick Beres | News Channel 5 | July 9, 2018

Tenn. - What's next for the state's star witness in the Holly Bobo murder case? Jason Autry is charged, but he helped send the two other defendants -- brothers Zach and Dylan Adams -- to prison. Now, some believe Autry, who is still jailed awaiting trail, will get a sweetheart deal.

That may happen, but not anytime soon. It's been ten months since a jury convicted Zach Adams of kidnapping raping and murdering Holly Bobo. He's now serving life in prison. There's no debate, Jason Autry put them there.

"What was your plan on disposing of Holly's body. Gut her," testified Autry at trial.

Autry is a co-defendant. He was charged along with the Zach and his brother Dylan Adams in the Bobo case.

"That's the way the game is played. You have circumstantial case with some physical evidence, but you need someone to tell the story. So, he was important. He told the story. and he was valuable. How valuable he was we'll find out when they cut his plea deal," said legal expert attorney Jim Todd.
Zach Adams attorney Jennifer Thompson has filed a notice of appeal. And she plans to cite several issues, alleged mistakes, arguing for a new trial.

So Autry could remain locked up until the appeals court rules - a least a couple more years.

For now, Autry remain incarcerated without bond in the Riverbend Maximum Security Prison.
