Prison For Mom’s Role In La Salle Shooting

Posted by wlpo on June 12, 2009

Dawn Pratt was sentenced yesterday to 14 years in prison on two counts of aggravated battery with a firearm. Prosecutors say she’s accountable for having her 14 year old son and another 13 year old boy from La Salle shoot Fabian Arness and Orlin Cano outside a house in La Salle last November. Arness and Cano recovered from their injuries.

Judge Cynthia Raccuglia admitted that she thinks Pratt has a mental disorder but it wasn’t bad enough to keep her out of prison. Pratt’s son and the other teen involved in the shooting already pled guilty and were given juvenile prison sentences.
