People v. Kane

Defendant charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting victim in the head at close range, inside a vehicle. Evidence included the gun which matched the bullet taken from the victim – who survived and was prepared to testify – along with witnesses as to motive. After an extensive investigation of the victim revealed him to be untrustworthy, the defendant was permitted to plead guilty to Attempted Criminal Possession of a Weapon – and received a promised sentence of probation.
