The arrest of a Bonifay man made national headlines in April 2004.
Sean Stewart reportedly chained his 14-year-old son to a pole on their family farm and then began firing at him with a revolver.
The 40-year-old accused the teenager of stealing his marijuana and wanted to teach him a lesson.
Stewart was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and child abuse.
Just before testimony got underway in his trial yesterday, Stewart pled guilty to reduced charges.
Under terms of the agreement, Stewart could spend a maximum of 11 months in the Holmes County Jail.
The defendant's two teenage sons say they forgive their dad and he needs to get into a drug rehab program.
Stewart is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
