A Preston man has been sentenced to serve up to five years in the state prison for shooting at two Preston Police officers during a domestic dispute earlier this year.
Jacob Ray Johnson was arrested early last spring for attempted murder of two police officers during a domestic dispute, according to court records.
Johnson was sentenced on Monday to at least five years in prison on each count. But he will be allowed to serve both terms at the same time. He was also given credit for the 200 days he has already served in the Caribou County jail.
Johnson shot at two Preston police officers who were responding to a domestic dispute. Johnson fired through the door of his home and bullets just missed both officers. They struck Johnson’s own vehicle, the police cars, and a nearby house. No one was hurt.
See next Wednesday’s print edition of The Preston Citizen for additional details and comments from local officials about the sentencing.
