TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California man who pointed a shotgun at a 7-year-old girl selling Girl Scout cookies has been given six months in jail.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise (https://bit.ly/1SZwk2S ) says John Dodrill was sentenced Friday. He pleaded guilty to possessing an illegal assault weapon and brandishing a firearm.

Authorities say the 61-year-old Temecula man answered a knock at his door two years ago by pointing a loaded shotgun at the Girl Scout.

The judge said Friday that Dodrill was “essentially a finger-twitch away from a homicide” and still doesn’t believe he did anything wrong.
