Kasen Smith, of Sebring, Ohio, made a really bad decision back in December of 2020.

Smith decided to do some hunting without permission, without a license and in an area where hunting is prohibited, due to Market Street and a nearby nursing home being in the area.  That isn’t all, though.

Smith took a shot that went across Market Street and ended up injuring a man by shooting him in the foot in his own home while in a room with his wife and baby, who were not injured.

He pled guilty to charges that resulted in a two-year sentence, however, prosecutors recommended Smith get four years. Due to a recent family tragedy involving the death of his young son, his sentence was shortened.
