Placeholder Image
A man who tried to shoot the mother of his children but was thwarted because he could not get his gun off safety will serve eight years in prison. The man, Rodrigo G. Rodriguez, 23, entered guilty pleas before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to charges of attempted second-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault. He was ordered to serve eight years at 100 percent, meaning he will not be eligible for parole.
