BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (AP) - A 19-year-old Saratoga County man has been sentenced to one to three years in prison for shooting his friend in the chest as part of a scheme to get disability payments.
The Daily Gazette of Schenectady reports that Terrance Naylor of South Glens Falls was sentenced earlier this week in a Saratoga County court for shooting 20-year-old Richmond Principe last June.
Police say the two friends staged a robbery during which Naylor shot Principe, just missing his heart. Principe has recovered.
The scheme called for Principe to collect disability payments and share them with Naylor. No payments were ever made.
Both men pleaded guilty in November, Principe to making a sworn false statement and Naylor to attempted assault.
Principe faces a year in jail when he's sentenced Jan. 24.
