A Lima man involved in a drive-by shooting back in March, took a plea deal in court today.

22-year-old Trey Ackles changed his plea to guilty on one count of felonious assault with an amended three-year firearm specification. The state dropped his remaining four charges. Ackles was sentenced today as well and with the state recommendation will serve three years mandatory for the firearm followed by four years for the assault charge. Ackles was already serving four years for a parole violation and drug charges in 2016 and 2017. Those will run consecutively to his new charges. It was released in court that the reason behind the drive-by stems from the shooting death of Amari Gooding in 2016.

"I don't understand it," Judge Jeffrey Reed said of Allen County Common Pleas Court. "It doesn't matter who started it. It matters, who's going to stop it. When your friend was dying in your arms, you should have been the man to say, this is not going to continue.'"
