Terry Kielisch was sentenced to 15 years in prison and ordered to pay $54,960 in restitution to cover the repair costs on a Georgia State Patrol helicopter that was searching for fugitives when Kielisch aimed his rifle at it in 2019, prosecutors said in a news release. Kielisch wasn't a target in that search " but he reportedly told law enforcement "he fired at the helicopter because he didn't like it flying near his home," the release says.

Only 15 years?

How many people were in the helicopter? It looks like attempted murder to me.

Yes only 15. The criminal counts he plead guilty to are in the article. I would start with attempted murder as a way to bargain it down if I was a prosecutor. This is sort of the definition of a red neck, hillbilly, qanon, etc. Hard to believe he shot at only because it was too close and there wasn't actually something criminal occurring on his property.
