SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan Falls man will spend 30 months in prison due to injuring two people with gunshots during a fight in that city last November. Judge Terrence Bourke sentenced 27-year-old Charles Chew Tuesday to the prison time and five years extended supervision. He will be credited with 206 days of prison time served as his court case progressed.
A jury trial in March found Chew guilty of a charge of recklessly endangering safety. Chew’s defense was that his actions were self defense against the two people who entered his apartment and attacked him. However, the jury saw his action of grabbing one of the attacker’s guns and shooting at them as they fled the area was not self defense. Both attackers suffered leg wounds.
