Milwaukee Woman Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison for Shooting George Webb Employee Over a Missing Burger
A Milwaukee woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting a George Webb employee over a missing hamburger.
Brianna Johnson was in court on Thursday, March 16, where video of the shooting was played for the judge.
It has been just over a year since the dispute over food escalated to gun violence inside a George Webb restaurant in Wauwatosa.
Anthony Rodriguez was working when he was shot in the face by Johnson, who was accompanied by her twin sister.
In court, Johnson’s attorney argued that the shooting was a horrible and traumatic accident, and that she never meant to pull the trigger.
Johnson apologized to Rodriguez in court, saying she was sorry for the pain she caused and hoped to redeem herself one day.
The prosecution highlighted how close this was to being a homicide case, stressing that disputes should never end in gun violence.
The judge ultimately handed down a 15-year sentence, with 10 years behind bars and five years of extended supervision.
Johnson was given credit for time served.
Rodriguez told reporters outside the courtroom that he appreciated Johnson’s apology, but felt that the sentence was fair.
Johnson’s twin sister is also a co-defendant in the case, with her plea hearing scheduled for the following Tuesday.
