PIERRE (AP) -- A Hughes County jury has found a Fort Pierre man not guilty of attempted murder but guilty of several other charges. The jury handed down the verdicts Friday afternoon for Derek Boe.

Boe was accused of shooting a shotgun into a vehicle occupied by his girlfriend last January. Boe was found guilty of aggravated assault, discharging a firearm at a vehicle and possessing a firearm by a felon. He pleaded guilty to being a habitual offender. A drug charge has yet to be decided.

Boe showed no emotion as the verdict was read. He faces up to 55 years in prison. No sentencing date has been set.
