A Johns Island man was sentenced to 15 years in prison after a home invasion that included shots fired at a deputy.
Christopher Allen Boling, 30, of Pineland Drive was charged with first-degree burglary. A Charleston County jury found him guilty Wednesday, and Judge Deidra Jefferson sentenced him to 15 years, according to the Ninth Circuit Solicitor's Office.
Boling had previously been convicted of criminal domestic violence, assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and simple assault.
Boling and another man forced their way into a home on Cane Slash Road twice early New Year's morning in 2011, beating the residents and holding a gun to a man's head, according to the Charleston County Sheriff's Office. The other man is accused of firing two shots at a deputy who was chasing them on foot after they fled.
Kevin Russell, 30, of Cane Slash Road, is in jail awaiting trial on charges that include attempted murder.
