A Winnetka man has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for a shooting that wounded former Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Josh Ravin's older brother more than two years ago.
Randall Elmer Stinson, 32, pleaded no contest Jan. 25 to the attempted murder of Joel Keith Ravin, along with allegations that he personally used a handgun and personally inflicted great bodily injury, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. Stinson was sentenced Tuesday.
Co-defendant James Edward Baggett, 31, was sentenced Feb. 7 to 13 years in state prison in connection with his no contest plea to kidnapping, along with an allegation that he personally used a handgun, according to the District Attorney's Office.
Joel Keith Ravin was kidnapped, forced into a vehicle and driven to various locations on Oct. 4, 2015, prosecutors said shortly after the case was filed.

He was then driven back to his West Hills residence, where he was shot multiple times, but survived, according to police and prosecutors. Stinson was arrested about two weeks later by Los Angeles police, and Baggett turned himself into authorities early the next month. Both men have been behind bars since then. The victim's brother, Josh Ravin, is now a starting pitcher for the Atlanta Braves.
