Man who pointed shotgun at girl selling Girl Scouts cookies gets jail time
A Southern California man who pointed a shotgun at a 7-year-old girl selling Girl Scout cookies has been given six months in jail.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise says John Dodrill was sentenced Friday. He pleaded guilty to possessing an illegal assault weapon and brandishing a firearm.
Authorities say the 61-year-old Temecula man answered a knock at his door two years ago by pointing a loaded shotgun at the Girl Scout.
