The Saratoga County man who admitted to unintentionally shooting and killing his wife will serve probation for five years.
Eric Rosenbrock was sentenced Monday – one year after the tragic incident in the couple's home.
A grand jury indicted him on a manslaughter charge, and he could've faced a sentence of up to five to 15 years in prison.
He agreed to plead guilty in September to criminally negligent homicide. By pleading to the lesser charge, Rosenbrock avoided the risk of a prison sentence and can continue to care for the couple's three young children.
Ashley Rosenbrock's mother spoke in court at the sentencing. She talked about her grief and about supporting her son-in-law.
