Prison ordered in ‘hot girlfriend’ shooting



Published: Fri, June 17, 2011 @ 11:45 a.m.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has been sent to prison for at least seven years for shooting another man because the victim looked at his “very hot girlfriend.”

The Morning Call of Allentown reports that 22-year-old Joel Ciprian was ordered Thursday to spend up to 15 years in prison for the September shooting of 45-year-old John Stewart.

Authorities say Ciprian told investigators that he began yelling at Stewart because he thought the man was checking out his girlfriend.

Stewart was shot twice outside an Allentown bar and spent nearly three weeks in the hospital.

At his sentencing, Ciprian called the shooting accidental but Lehigh County Judge Robert Steinberg asked how that could be, since Stewart was shot twice.

Ciprian says he meant to fire the shots into the air.
