LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The U.S. Attorney’s Office say a federal judge has sentenced a Lafayette man to 10 years in prison for shooting at a postal worker.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley said in a news release 41-year-old David Sonnier will also serve two years of supervised release and was ordered Tuesday to pay $1,178 in restitution for firing the bullet, which passed through the postal worker’s pant leg before lodging in the mail-delivery vehicle.

Sonnier pleaded guilty on Sept. 16 to one count of discharging a firearm during commission of a crime of violence, admitting he fired the shot as the postal worker drove by his home.
