Halloween Shooter Sentenced
by Liz Cooper, firstname.lastname@example.org
A Casper man that shot one person at a Halloween party last year, will spend at least four years in prison.
19-year-old Nicholas Frederick, who has an extensive criminal history, changed his plea to guilty this morning. Frederick was originally charged with two counts of aggravated assault.
In the plea agreement, one charged of aggravated assault was dropped, leaving only one with a maximum penalty of 10 years. The state argued for a maximum of 7 years, but District Court Judge Park, handed down a four to six year sentence with a recommendation of boot-camp.
On October 28th, Frederick fired multiple shots from his vehicle as he was leaving a party, following an altercation with a man he shot. When Frederick was found in Colorado a few months after the incident, had initially told officers that he "didn't kill anyone, i just tried to."
Frederick was also recently sentenced to three to five years in prison for his part in a large meth ring that expanded beyond Wyoming borders. That sentence is to run concurrent with his aggravated assault charge.
