When a man who was reported as homeless was walking to his place of employment around midnight he cut through a church parking lot on his path. While making his way through the area he was allegedly hit in the body and face by several paintballs.

The man, who is in his 50’s, said that he noticed a blue car with teenagers inside and that the vehicle came to a stop before he was struck by the objects. He also recalled hearing them verbalizing what he believed was their amusement about the alleged incident as they allegedly laughed.

Sherri Lynn Wilkins, a substance abuse counselor in California, hit a man with her vehicle and drove two miles with his body plastered to her windshield. Wilkins was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

The 55 year old Wilkins had pleaded no contest to second-degree murder and two counts of driving under the influence (DUI).

In 2014, Wilkins was found guilty on similar charges relating to the same crime, but an appeals court threw out the conviction based on the fact that her whole life’s criminal history had been admitted into trial and could have possibly caused prejudice with the jury.
