SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A western Oregon man has been sentenced to just under 29 years in prison for shooting a Salem police officer.
Jaime Lee Jimenez, 39, received the sentence Friday in Marion County Circuit Court.
He was found guilty of premeditated, attempted aggravated murder in December following a stipulated facts trial before Marion County Judge Thomas Hart.
Salem Police Officer Michelle Pratt pulled Jimenez over in April and was shot in the left arm, both legs and her back. Her ballistic vest stopped the bullet that hit her back.
Jimenez fled but was arrested a few hours later at an apartment complex.
Jimenez also pleaded guilty to four counts of second-degree assault, illegal possession of a firearm by a felon and dealing methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school.
