Prosecutors are recommending a five-year-sentence for the son of a former Youngstown police chief indicted in connection with a shooting on I-680 last year.

Assistant Mahoning County Prosecutor Mike Yacovone told 21 News that 30-year-old Jared F. Hughes has already agreed to plead guilty to charges related to the shooting of a young woman in March 2018.

Hughes, son of former Youngstown Police Chief Jimmy Hughes, is facing two felony charges including discharge of a firearm on or near prohibited premises and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle.

Police said the shooting stemmed from a road rage incident in which then 18-year-old Kailie Weimer was shot in her leg as the bullet pierced through her vehicle door.

A 17-year-old female was also in the car at the time.

A search warrant was then later carried out at a home on Buell Avenue in Campbell in connection to the investigation.

Yacovone said Hughes had already made a deal with the family's consent prior to bringing the case to the grand jury.

Yacovone says that although the prosecutor's office is recommending a five year sentence, a judge will make the ultimate decision.

The next court date is scheduled for June 25 where a judge will be assigned to the case.
