Monroe Co. man avoids prison for shooting mother

Man gets probation after shooting mother

SPARTA, Wis. (WKBT) - A man accused of shooting his mother in the back will avoid prison time.

A judge sentenced 25-year-old Cody Kraabel to 8-years Thursday, but stayed 3 years of prison time and put Kraabel on probation for the remaining five years.

He had pleaded no contest to a felony charge of first degree recklessly endangering safety. He originally also faced Attempted First Degree Intentional Homicide and Reckless Use of a Firearm Charges, but those were dropped as a result of a plea deal earlier this year.

Kraabel's mother suffered non-life threatening injuries as a result of the 2015 shooting.
