Las Vegas – Attorneys for a man convicted on charges linked to a shooting involving a reality television program crew plan to seek bail in the case. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), defense attorneys for former schoolteacher Carlos Enrique Barron, 43, say they will seek his release following his conviction on four charges linked to the shooting.
Barron was found guilty of felony assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, burglary and misdemeanor discharging a firearm on Thursday. Prior to his conviction he had been allowed free on $100,000 bond.
Sentencing for the charges can range from probation to up to 22 years in prison. According to defense attorney Richard Tannery, if granted probation, Barron will be unable to appeal the conviction. Tannery is quoted as stating, “Sometimes you don’t want to get what you ask for — a new trial.”
Barron was acquitted of three more serious charges linked to the 2011 shooting including attempted murder. Defense attorney Bennair Bateman is quoted as stating of the case, “We’re glad we were able to beat the most serious charges… But we have mixed emotions that he was found guilty of the other charges.”
No one was reportedly hurt in the shooting.
