PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - A man accused of shooting a gun into the crowd at a family party in Scott, Ark. and killing one after striking two people back in May of 2012 faced a judge Thursday.
According to AOC Court Connect, Terry Detherow was convicted of manslaughter with firearm enhancement. Additionally, the judges note says that he was sentenced to 30 years for manslaughter and 15 years for enhancement to consecutively.
According to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office Detherow fired into a crowd while at a family gathering in Scott, striking one man and killing John Mosley.
Prosecutors initially charged Detherow with first degree murder, but charges were later reduced by the jury.
"If somebody that dangerous is allowed the same opportunity who hasn't got no prior charges and it's their first...there has to be some review of this to see if it's fair for the jury," says Robert Mosley, the father of John Mosley.
