A San Miguel man will serve up to life in prison for shooting his girlfriend in the neck. In November of last year, 38-year-old Jim Pinedo was found guilty on a number of charges including attempted murder. The charges stem from an October 2017 incident. His girlfriend at the time ended up at Twin Cities Hospital in Templeton with a gunshot wound to her neck. She i.d.’d Pinedo as the shooter, but later recanted her story saying she was accidentally shot during a struggle for the gun. The D.A.’s Office called yesterday’s sentencing a victory for all domestic violence victims.
