Man sentenced to 16 years for taking pictures at kids for throwing snowballs

A man named William Carson from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has been sentenced to 16 years in prison and his reaction to some neighborhood kids fooling around in the snow has been gross.

He received 16 years for shooting at a group of children

William was hit with the verdict last Friday, according to FOX6 News Milwaukee, and it’s related to an incident that happened more than three years ago.

Back then, on January 4, 2020, a group of about seven children threw snowballs at cars on the north side of Milwaukee. After Williams’ car was hit by a snowball, the man turned, exited the vehicle, and fired a volley of gunfire as the children fled in desperation.

Two of the seven children were beaten, with one hit in the arm and the other sustaining a thigh injury. A third child’s jacket was also hit by a bullet.

After fleeing the scene, William was arrested a few days later and arrested while driving under the influence of alcohol. He was also found with a gun, and tests showed it was “highly likely” that it was the same firearm that was used to shoot at the children.

As a result, William Carson was charged with two counts of first-degree reckless injury and five counts of first-degree reckless endangerment of security.

The prosecutors initially asked for a prison sentence of 25 years

While William is away for some time, prosecutors reportedly wanted to get him sentenced to 25 years in prison.

That sentiment was supported by the testimony of Monique Wilbourn, the mother of one of the children involved in the ordeal.

“You really hurt us, and I really want you to pay for what you did to my family.”

Although the sentence was less than prosecutors demanded, we should add that William Carson will face extended custody for ten years after his release.
