LIMA – A 21-year-old Lima man who discharged an AK-47 outside a Lima residence earlier this year and inadvertently wounded a man who was sleeping in a nearby apartment was sentenced Monday to four years in prison.
Marvin Bridges was indicted in May on charges of improperly discharging a firearm at or into a habitation, the discharge of a weapon on or near prohibited premises and felonious assault with a three-year firearm specification, a felony of the second degree. He entered into an agreement with prosecutors in April and pleaded guilty to the felonious assault charge with an amended one-year firearm specification. In return, the state dismissed all remaining charges.
Judge Jeffrey Reed sentenced Bridges to a mandatory one-year prison sentence on the firearm charge and an additional three year prison term, to be served consecutively to the firearm sentence, on the felonious assault charge. Bridges was given credit for 330 days of jail time served and will be eligible to seek early judicial release after serving six months in prison.
