OSHKOSH - The Oshkosh man who shot and paralyzed his brother-in-law on Christmas Eve in 2011 has been committed to a mental health facility.
A judge Wednesday sentenced Christopher Andreas to serve 30 years of treatment at the Department of Health. It's the maximum time allowed.
Andreas was found not guilty by reason of mental disease last month.
Wednesday he apologized to his brother-in-law and family.
"I just wanted to apologize to my family," said Andreas. "I wish I could just go back in time and undo all of this, but I can't."
Andreas' brother-in-law, who was the victim in the incident, says the treatment time is too long. But other family members disagree. We hear from both sides.
"I'm not too happy about how much time he's going to be away, and I don't think he needed to get the full 30 years, but that's just my opinion," said Christopher Garland, brother-in-law.
"My family lives in fear of the day he would ever be released, because he will not take his medications. He thinks they're poison, and we are all in fear of our lives," said Joy Crosser, aunt.
The family members say Andreas has had mental issues his whole life.
