No jail time for Louisa hunter who fired into house

Posted on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 12:00 pm

A judge issued a suspended sentence to a Chesterfield hunter who fired multiple shotgun shells into an occupied house.

Judge Claiborne Stokes said Garland Holt, 72, should serve a 90-day suspended sentence and three years’ probation for reckless handling of a firearm and attempting to elude Louisa County Sheriff’s Office deputies on Dec. 26.

Holt was arrested shortly after a woman on River Breeze Road reported hearing a gunshot and seeing a body in the road. The body turned out to be that of a deer Holt had just shot. Deputy Justin Hall later found several bullet holes in the woman’s house.
