It took two attempts but Oscar Broyles finally had his day in court.
On Monday, he was sentenced in a case involving his neighbors, a gun and their dog.
In June 2007, 69 -year-old Broyles was indicted on two counts of aggravated assault and one of animal cruelty, according to court records.
But last April prosecutors in the case were forced to drop those charges after officers with the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department lost the case file.
A short time later prosecutors were able to reindict Broyles gaining a conviction at trial.
