He gets 1-year jail term

Anthony Finnegan was sentenced to a year in jail on Wednesday for the shooting of his half-brother.

Finnegan, who pleaded no contest to assault with a firearm on a person, is expected to be out of jail in just over two months with credit for time served and good time.

His anticipated release date is Nov. 3, according to the Kern County Sheriff's jail website.

He already has credit for 208 days time served since his arrest in May - 104 days actually served, 104 days good time.

Finnegan accepted a plea deal on July 20.

In exchange for the no contest plea, counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a felon were dismissed.

Finnegan was arrested by Taft Police in Ventura on May 6, two months after the shooting on the 500 block of Fourth Street that left Jessy James Miller critically injured.

Police identified Finnegan as the suspect shortly after the shooting and soon a Kern County Sheriff's SWAT team surrounded his apartment about a block from the shooting.

After several hours, it was determined Finnegan was not there.

He remained on the loose until May when officers received a tip that he was staying in a homeless camp in the Ventura River known a the "Hobo Jungle."

Local police, accompanied by Ventura officers, found Finnegan there and arrested him.
