Eric Stanley admitted firing a .22-caliber rifle from the window of a car

Eric T. Stanley, 19, pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree murder in the shooting of 16-year-old Shamar Patterson. He faces a prison term ranging from 19 years to 25 years when state Supreme Court Justice David D. Egan sentences him March 28.He was to go to trial Monday.His brother, Terrance L. Stanley, 17, refused to plead guilty to the same charge and will go to trial March 24. Terrance Stanley had been promised a prison term of 10 years, to be served after a 7 ½-year prison term he received for an unrelated robbery.Eric Stanley admitted firing a .22-caliber rifle from the window of a car, allegedly driven by his brother, at a group of people standing near Genesee and Earl Streets. Patterson was hit in the back of the head.Both brothers are charged with second-degree murder. The prosecution offered the plea to both, with the understanding that they would waive their right to appeal, to guarantee a conviction, said Assistant District Attorney Joanne M. Winslow.After a review of evidence in the case, the prosecution said it was concerned that jurors could return a compromise verdict and convict the brothers of the lesser offense of second-degree manslaughter, which carries a maximum penalty of five to 15 years in prison, Winslow said.
