Hayes, a 29-year-old truck driver and dog breeder from the Ninth Ward in New Orleans, was sentenced by Judge Buras after being convicted on Dec. 11. During the trial, Hayes argued that the shooting, which took place after traffic incident, was unintentional.

Hayes’ sentencing ran Wednesday and Thursday at the Orleans Parish Criminal Court. Hayes’ lawyers presented a motion to get a new trial, which was denied.
Judge Buras also set a trial date of June 26 for a pending aggravated assault charge against Smith, according to Ramon Vargas of The New Orleans Advocate.
