After nearly five hours of deliberation, a jury sentenced a Texas lawyer on Tuesday to three years in prison for firing five shots in 2010 at a U.S. census worker as the woman was trying to get the house number at the lawyer's residence in the Leander area.
The census worker, who was not injured, said she heard a shot, turned around, and saw Barnes pointing a revolver at her. She heard four more shots as she fled the scene.
