Man Charged With Shooting Related To Police Presence At School Up For Parole

A man charged with second-degree assault for shooting a teenager at the time, leading to police presence at the school with rifles, is up for parole this month.

Billy R. Aguilar, who is now 21, will have his parole hearing June 27th at 9:30 am. He was sentenced to eight years and eight months to 15 years in the Omaha Correctional Center in Hall County District Court.

Previous Story
A Grand Island teenager who shot another this past winter was given seven-to-12 years in prison.

The shooting had sparked rumors of possible retaliation and prompted the posting of rifle-toting officers at Grand Island High School.

After a deal with prosecutors, 17-year-old Billy Aguilar Jr. had pleaded no contest to adult felony charges of assault and to attempted burglary in an unrelated case. A weapons charge was dropped.

Aguilar was sentenced on Friday to 7-to-12 years for the assault and 20 months-to-36 months for attempted burglary. The sentences are to be served in succession.

Gang-retaliation rumors soon swept through town, prompting police to station extra officers, some toting rifles, at the school on Feb. 3 to reassure students and parents.
