Man Who Shot Burglar Makes Plea Deal
(LAYTON, UT) – A Layton , Utah man who was arrested after shooting at a man who burglarized his home has reached a plea deal with prosecutors. Clare Niederhauser agreed to a lessened charge of a class B misdemeanor for discharging his weapon within city limits. He will also have to pay $700 in fines and forfeit his handgun used in shooting.
