You may remember that last summer I wrote a post about the wife of the Fort Lauderdale, FL, chief of police, having been arrested and charged with various offenses after taking her husband's service weapon and firing several shots in his direction while he slept in bed.
Eleanor Adderly missed Frank Adderly, fortunately. But she continued to brandish the weapon and chased her husband to a neighbor's home.
So, Mrs. Adderly is apparently close to a plea deal that will save her from serious jail time.
One of the reasons is prosecutors have not charged her with attempted murder... even though she fired a gun at her sleeping husband.
See, Mrs. Adderly says she wasn't trying to strike Chief Adderly with bullets; she only wanted to scare him. I recommend shouting "boo!" in those situations.
Anyway, I guess "oops, my bad!" is all the defense you need in this scenario.
So apparently, if you're connected and you shoot at someone inside a house or at least fire in their direction, it's called "shooting into an occupied dwelling."
But if you're not connected and you do it, it's called you're going away for 10 years or longer.
