Sean Cherry, 20, is charged with 29 counts including attempted first and second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, discharging a firearm, firearm possession by a convicted felon among other charges for a non-fatal shooting on Sept. 16, 2023. Cherry was arrested in January for the offense.

During the Friday hearing, Cherry was offered a plea deal, sentencing him to 60 years suspending all but 45 years in prison with five years on parole and registering as a gun offender if he pleaded guilty to several counts including attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, and reckless endangerment. Cherry rejected the offer.
