A 31-year-old U.K. man who recently dedicated his life to Jesus Christ decided to confess his sins and turn himself in to police for shooting another man in the face in 2005. He will now serve a 12-year sentence after being convicted on several charges by a London court on Friday.
The shooter, Merice Brown, reportedly wanted to clear his conscience after becoming a Christian and turned himself in to a Leicester police station on March 2, according to authorities. He is being held at the Inner London Crown Court after pleading guilty to attempted murder and two firearm offences for shooting a man four times in the face.
