Joseph Cho, a former Penn Law student accused of attempted murder, was sentenced to five to 10 years in prison and 20 years of probation on Friday, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

Cho is accused of firing 15 shots into the door of his downstairs neighbors' apartment in January 2007 while he was in his second year at Penn Law.

Police said Cho, who is Korean, believed the neighbors — two male Drexel University students — were spies because they were Indian and studying biomedical engineering.

Since his arrest, Cho has spent time undergoing treatment ?in a mental-health facility, which had delayed legal proceedings.
