SHEBOYGAN -- Ricardo Hibbler, 32, of Fond du Lac was sentenced on July 20 to 14 years in prison and 10 years of extended supervision for his role in a 2017 Sheboygan shooting.
Hibbler was found guilty at trial in February 2020, charged with one count of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, repeater; and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon, repeater.
