Andrew Patterson, convicted of fatally shooting Justin Ferrari in May 2012, was sentenced today to 23 years in prison.
Patterson’s errant gunshot killed Ferrari as he drove through the intersection of East Cherry Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way.
Patterson pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in July. At his sentencing this morning, he apologized to Ferrari’s family, but later said “I get out when I’m 41. That’s f—-d up.”
Prosecutors asked for a 19 year sentence, while Patterson’s defense argued for 13 years. In the end, Patterson received a 280-month sentence.
