A 19-year-old Jacksonville man was sentenced this week to 20 years in prison, with a 20-year minimum mandatory on each of the two counts of attempted aggravated battery that he was convicted of in January.

Aaron Wallace was also sentenced to five years for possession of a firearm by a juvenile found to have committed a felony act. The sentences run concurrently.

In March 2013, two female victims, one of whom has a child with Wallace, went to his home to retrieve a Wii gaming system. After a brief verbal disagreement, the two girls left in their vehicle.

As they drove from Wallace's home, he pulled out a gun and fired two shots at the vehicle. The victims were not hurt.
