California man gets 9 years in North Dakota shooting

MINOT, N.D. — A California man who admitted his role in a conspiracy to kill a Minot man has been sentenced to nine years in prison.

Thirty-six-year-old James Robinson was among four men accused of traveling to Minot in July 2013 with plans to kill another man, in an incident authorities said involved members of a California gang.

Investigators say the man who was shot was apparently not the intended target because the suspects had received an incorrect address. Christopher Docher was shot twice in the neck but survived.

Robinson last month pleaded guilty to a murder conspiracy charge and prosecutors dropped an attempted murder charge. He was sentenced Tuesday, and given credit for more than a year he’s already spent behind bars. He was ordered to pay more than $131,000 in restitution.
