      Chatham Man Sentenced After Killing his Neighbor in Hunting Accident

      Pittsylvania County, VA - A Chatham man will serve a year in jail after accidentally shooting his neighbor while hunting last December.

      63-year-old Harry Hale was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and shooting from a vehicle.

      Hale shot his neighbor, Richie Pope, while Pope was walking his dog on a residential street.

      He apologized in court yesterday and claimed that he had mistaken Pope for a deer.

      The judge also ordered Hale to pay Pope's widow restitution.
