Rose Sentencing

Gary Bruce Rose, 65, sits at the defense table at the Bonneville County Courthouse on Monday as the judge and attorneys have a sidebar.

IDAHO FALLS — A former Idaho Falls City Council member will spend the next two years in prison for attempting to shoot and kill a man at City Hall.

District Judge Dane Watkins Jr. sentenced Gary Bruce Rose, 65, to a minimum of two years in prison and up to 15 years for the attempted shooting, which was only prevented because the gun failed to fire twice.
