An Omaha, Nebraska man has been sentenced to five years of probation for his role in a plot to shoot a Mapleton, Iowa man at that man's request. Authorities say 20-year-old Joseph Roberts was one of two men that Darren Hieber hired to shoot him at this farm near Mapleton on March 8th to gain sympathy from his ex-wife.
Roberts pleaded guilty in the case. He was also given a suspended five-year prison term.
19-year-old Timothy Culley also pleaded guilty in the case earlier and was sentenced to five years of probation.
Police say it was the second time Hieber hired someone to shoot him. He was also shot on February 5th at his business in Onawa. One of his employees, Brady Chapman, pleaded guilty in that case and was given two years of probation.
