Kingston man gets community service for Airsoft shooting

KINGSTON — A Kingston man received 200 hours of community service  for his role in an Airsoft shooting last year.

George C. Hill III was charged with three counts of fourth-degree assault, one count of third-degree theft, and one count of third-degree attempted theft for some incidents that occurred June 15.

In the diversion agreement with Kitsap County District Court Dec. 30, Hill agreed to community service as well as fines and restitution. The agreement is for five years.

Two teen boys involved in the case pleaded guilty in Superior Court Oct. 6, each receiving a year of probation and 116 hours of community service. Jasmine Campbell, a former Miss Viking Fest, Dietrich Rios-Nicolaisen and Brandyn Winkley are also charged with three counts of fourth-degree assault, one count of third-degree theft, and one count of third-degree attempted theft. Campbell asked for her pre-trial hearing to be postponed from Jan. 4 to Feb. 8 at 8:30 a.m.

Rios-Nicolaisen was due in court Tuesday. Winkley is due in court Jan. 17.

According to the investigator’s Statement of Probable Cause, the group fired Airsoft rifles from a car in the Central Market parking lot and in the Walmart parking lot. Two people struck by pellets said “the pellets hurt and left bruises and red marks that lasted several days,” according to the investigator’s report.

The group also allegedly ordered food at a fast food restaurant and left without paying for it.
