A Fruit Heights couple whose house was peppered with bullets in a drive-by shooting urged the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday to adopt a bill that would establish an enhanced penalty for the crime.

"Can you imagine what it's like to be in the privacy of your own home and have 10 bullets fired in it?" said Diane Anderson. One bullet passed 4 feet in front of her."This wasn't in New York. This wasn't in California. This was in Fruit Heights, Utah," Anderson said.

HB235, sponsored by Rep. Marda Dillree, R-Farmington, would impose an enhanced penalty for drive-by shootings if the shooter committed the act with the intent to "harass a person" or damage the structure. The offense would carry a minimum three-year prison term. Judges would determine if the enhanced penalty was appropriate, Dillree said.
