Potts gets 25 yrs in prison for 2008 G.C. murder

A 31-year-old man is going to prison for 25 years for a 2008 Grand Chute murder.

Michael Potts of Milwaukee pleaded no contest to a charge of first-degree reckless homicide charge in March, during his second trial.

He was convicted of shooting 23-year-old Artheddius "Pierre" Peeler, in the parking lot of an apartment complex. Peeler was in town from Minnesota, to celebrate his birthday, and there was an argument about noise.

Outagamie County District Attorney Carrie Schneider says yesterday's sentence was in line with what she requested.

Potts will also spend 20 years on extended supervision, once he's released. An Outagamie County judge threw out his original conviction, two years ago.

Twenty-nine-year-old Keith Birr of Neenah is serving a five-year prison sentence for his role in the murder.
