SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A man has been sentenced in a shooting at a coastal Georgia fair that left eight people injured.

The Savannah Morning News reports (https://bit.ly/1CnnCyW ) 23-year-old Lajuan Sloman was sentenced on Wednesday to 15 years in prison and 35 years of probation for his role in a November 2012 shooting that injured eight people at the Costal Empire Fairgrounds.

Sloman pleaded guilty to eight counts of assault and eight weapons charges before his trial that was scheduled to begin on Monday. Part of his plea agreement included prosecutors dropping 18 gang terrorism charges against him.

Chatham County Superior Court Judge Michael Karpf said Sloman showed no remorse for the shootings and he hopes Sloman doesn’t get parole.
