MARQUETTE - A man shot during an attempted breaking and entering in Marquette was sentenced Friday to nearly one year in jail.
Jesse Homa, 24, of Sayner, Wis., pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of third degree home invasion and was sentenced in Marquette County Circuit Court to 360 days in Marquette County Jail, with credit for 36 days already served.
Homa was also ordered to pay fines and costs of $748.
He was originally charged with one count of first degree home invasion, a 20-year felony.
Homa was arrested May 22 following an alleged breaking and entering incident at a residence in the Birchgrove Mobile Home Community.
According to the Marquette City Police Department, Homa was pounding on the door of a residence on Pioneer Road and kicking and punching vehicles outside that residence.
Police said Homa kicked in the side door of the residence and entered the home, prompting the home owner to shoot at Homa three times with a .22-caliber handgun. Homa was hit twice in the legs before fleeing the scene.
Police said Homa was found a short time later and taken to Marquette General Hospital, where he was treated and released.
