Washington state man gets reduced sentence for shooting

CENTRALIA, Wash. (AP) — A Washington state judge has reduced the life sentence for a man convicted in a drive-by shooting when he was a teenager.

The Daily Chronicle reports Lewis County Superior Court Judge Andrew Toynbee reduced the sentence Tuesday to 30 years in prison for Guadalupe Solis Diaz.

Solis Diaz was initially sentenced to 92 years following the 2007 conviction for the shooting in which no one was injured. The sentence was overturned by an appeals court judge, but a superior court Judge later reinstated it.

The sentence was overturned again in 2016, leading to a reduced sentence.

Lewis County prosecutors had requested 43 years in prison while Solis Diaz’s attorney requested time served.
