Man sentenced for shooting 17-year-old girl with rifle
MAYETTA, Kan. (AP) — An 18-year-old Mayetta man was sentenced to five years in prison for using a rifle to shoot a 17-year-old girl, who survived.
Jackson County Attorney Shawna Miller says Lance Bailey was sentenced Thursday for aggravated battery and two counts of aggravated assault.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Bailey will be on three years of post-release supervision and must register as a violent offender for 15 years.
Bailey pleaded guilty last month as part of an agreement that dismissed a charge of attempted murder.
Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse said Bailey opened fire when a car carrying three girls arrived at the home on the Potawatomi Reservation west of Mayetta.
The 17-year-old girl was shot twice as she stood in the driveway. Morse said Bailey and the girl had a previous altercation.
