COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - A man who was charged with attempted murder following a 2018 shooting in Five Points on St. Patrick’s Day pleaded guilty to the charges on Wednesday.
According to court records, Arthur Jones, Jr. pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted murder and two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
A judge sentenced Jones to 60 years for attempted murder, but after he serves 40 he can be released. He was also sentenced to 10 years on the weapon charges, but will serve that time concurrently.
Police said three other men were involved in the shooting. However, they turned themselves in once they saw themselves on television.
So far, Jones has served more than 600 days in prison.
