Jury Finds North Idaho Man Guilty Of Shooting at Census Worker

A northern Idaho man has been found guilty of disturbing the peace for firing a shotgun over the car of a U.S. Census worker. The Coeur d’Alene Press reports 55-year-old Richard Powell of St. Maries was sentenced to five days in jail and ordered to pay $437 in fines and court costs. Benewah County prosecutors say Powell fired the shotgun as a way to chase Raymond Stanis from his property. Powell testified during his Febuary 23 trial that he was in a hurry to visit his sick mother and was frustrated that Stanis wouldn’t leave. Investigators say when Stanis told Powell he would leave the questionnaire outside, Powell went into his house, came out with a gun and fired it about 15 feet over the worker’s car. The jury deliberated 15 minutes.
