(Ottumwa)— A 33 year old Ottumwa man charged with intimidation will spend 5 years in prison.  Rusty Salter was originally charged with attempted murder following an incident in Selma last October after being involved in an altercation that led to shots being fired at a house.

Salter was sentenced to 10 years in prison, but the term in prison was reduced for time already spent in jail.

In addition Salter was ordered not to have contact with Raymond, Randall and Austin Ritz for five years.
