A 16-year-old has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison for shooting four people near a middle school football game in Saginaw.
Saginaw County Circuit Judge Fred Borchard on Thursday sentenced Anthony Green Jr. to 10 to 20 years in prison on four counts of assault with intent to murder.
Green was sentenced to serve an additional two years for two counts of felony firearm, with credit for 510 days already served. He also will serve up to five years on another weapons charge, concurrent with the assault sentence.
Green admitted shooting two teens and a married couple with a .22-caliber rifle outside South Middle School in 2007.
Defense attorney James Piazza says Green pleaded guilty to avoid the risk of a life sentence if convicted at trial.
