CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Fayetteville, Pa., man who last month pleaded guilty to aggravated assault for a road-rage incident in which he shot a vehicle driven by his nephew was sentenced to five years on probation Wednesday in Franklin County Court.
The sentence for 73-year-old Max Eugene Goshorn includes six months of intense supervision and a $300 fine. Judge Carol Van Horn also ordered him to pay $385 in restitution to Clarence E. Goshorn of Chambersburg for damage to his vehicle.
"I obviously think it was the right decision," said Max Goshorn's attorney, Eric J. Weisbrod. "He is clinically diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder."
Goshorn, of 2124 Hafer Road, is a decorated Army veteran whose medals include the Bronze Star, two Air Medals and two Purple Hearts, Weisbrod said. The March 8 shooting was an isolated incident and "probably a result of his distinguished service to our country" during wartime, he said.
