Hesperia Man Gets 6-Year Sentence For Shooting Out Car Windows On Various Freeways

SAN BERNARDINO  (AP) — A satellite TV installer from San Bernardino County has been sentenced to six years in prison for shooting a BB gun at dozens of vehicles on Southern California freeways.

The Sun of San Bernardino says court records show William Frye of Hesperia was sentenced Friday as part of a plea bargain.

The 41-year-old pleaded guilty to three felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon. He had faced 76 counts.

Frye was arrested in June 2010 after officers in unmarked vehicles saw him shooting at a Cadillac Escalade as he drove his Toyota Tundra.

California Highway Patrol investigators said Frye was responsible for shooting out dozens of car windows along interstates 10, 15, and 215 and state highways 60 and 91. No one was injured.

    Murray will get 4yrs if convicted in the killing of Michael Jackson but, here is a guy who knocks out car windows and he gets 6yrs. Oh, I get it – Murray didn’t use a gun!

    This guy endangered many more lives than Murray. He had 76 counts.

    If he were to have killed someone, he would have gotten 2 years probation and 500 hours of community service.

    Should get 3 times that amount of time without parole! No shooting allowed where guns arn’t allowed! Understand! This is giving good gun owners a black eye!

    This guy gets 6 years and then the woman in OC gets 3 years for DUI and killing a guy on a bike. Where is the balance in sentencing inour legal system these days?
