Berain Winfield, a Syracuse man who was acquitted of attempted murder, will face a shorter prison term following a shooting incident in Seneca Falls last year.
The Finger Lakes Times reports Winfield pleaded guilty to a felony count of second-degree attempted assault.
The plea came during a trial that started on June 5, leading to Winfield’s acquittal on more serious charges, according to the Times and prosecutors in Seneca County.
Winfield’s arrest in May 2022 followed a two-week investigation into a shooting event in which he allegedly fired multiple shots at a 23-year-old man, who remained uninjured.
