Michael Potts was also placed on extended supervision for 20 years by Outagamie County Judge Mark McGinnis.
A jury originally convicted Potts of first-degree intentional homicide for the 2008 shooting at a Grand Chute birthday party. But after sentencing, McGinnis ruled that Potts' trial attorney was ineffective and ordered a new trial. Before that trial could be concluded, Potts agreed to a plea deal with a conviction for reckless homicide.
Another man, Keith Birr, was acquitted for his alleged role in the shooting.
