The New York City Probation Department has recommended that subway gunman Bernhard H. Goetz be spared a prison sentence after being convicted on a weapons charge but acquitted of attempted murder, Mark Baker, one of Goetz's lawyers, said. Goetz, a 39-year-old electronics specialist, was convicted June 16 of third-degree possession of a weapon in connection with the shooting of four youths on a Manhattan subway train Dec. 22, 1984. Goetz is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 7, and faces up to seven years in prison.
