WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- A man convicted in Williston of offering cash for a hit on an associate in the drug trade has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Billy Owens will be on supervised probation for five years following his prison term.
Prosecutors say Owens paid Paul Huckstep $1,500 in May 2012 to assault Kenneth Moore, who was shot multiple times and is paralyzed from the chest down.
Owens was convicted last October of leading a criminal organization and conspiring to commit assault.
Huckstep was charged with attempted murder and pleaded guilty last year to a reduced charge of terrorizing. He was sentenced to five years in prison.
