Rochester Teen Sent to Prison for Drive-by Shooting Case
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester teenager who pleaded guilty to a drive-by shooting charge in Olmsted County Juvenile Court two years ago has been sent to prison.
Matthew Miller was 17-years-old when he fired several shots at a car in December 2013. As part of a plea agreement, Miller was given an extended juvenile jurisdiction sentence, meant to keep him under the court’s supervision until his 21st birthday. He was later sent to the Teen Challenge program but fled while on furlough. Miller was caught last month.
After it was determined he was not amenable to treatment, Miller was sentenced to 48 months in prison.
