UPDATE: Hilser to serve 10 years in prison for Lebanon apartment complex shooting
A Circuit Court judge has sent a Russell County, Virginia man to prison for 10 years after a jury found him guilty in October of shooting an unarmed man.
Prosecutors said Josiah Tyree Hilser, 23, of Lebanon, shot at the victim multiple times at an apartment complex in November of 2021. He was charged with aggravated malicious wounding.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Zack Stoots said Hilser was on probation and bond for another incident when the crime occurred.
