Justin Michael Smith accepted a plea deal Wednesday on charges of criminal attempt to commit murder and being a second-degree persistent felony offender.
Smith, 31, could serve 30 years in prison if Hardin County Judge Kelly Mark Easton accepts the deal offered by the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
Sentencing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Aug. 7.
Easton accepted Smith’s guilty plea to both charges and asked the defendant about the incident.
Smith said his memory of the encounter was blurry.
