I was co-counsel in a murder trial several months ago. Our client had chased two burglars out of his home and shot one in the back about a block away from his apartment. The jury did not find our client guilty of murder or manslaughter but convicted him of reckless homicide, a class D felony carrying 1-5 years in prison. I was able to briefly address the jury about why one year was the appropriate sentence. The jury deliberated about ten minutes and fixed our client's sentence at the minimum of one year.
