A Fort Hall, Idaho, man was sentenced in federal court in Great Falls to more than five years in prison for shooting a woman in the leg when she would not tell him where his girlfriend was.
U.S. Chief District Court Judge Dana Christensen sentenced Creston Kindness, 30, during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Great Falls.
