Grandfather won't be jailed for shooting granddaughter

| No Comments

A Rochester minister has been ordered to complete 100 hours of community service for shooting and wounding his granddaughter, the Pioneer Press said.

Stanley Wilkinson mistook his granddaughter for a burglar in December, and subsequently shot her in the neck. An Olmsted County judge sentenced Wilkinson to 91 days in jail. Wilkinson then pleaded guilty to intentional discharge of a firearm that endangers safety, which reduced his penalty to community service, the Star Tribune said.

The 16-year-old granddaughter was wounded but not seriously injured. She told authorities that she left her grandparents' house without telling them.
