Last of four Ohioans charged in police shootout found guilty
By The Associated Press
A man who admitted shooting a Perry police officer and firing at two other deputies was sentenced Friday to 107 years in prison.
Charles Brutus Wright, 19, had admitted that he fired at Sgt. Chris Sutcliff during an April 26 shootout.
His girlfriend, 18-year-old Heather Elizabeth Michael, was sentenced to at least 12 years in prison after being found guilty Wednesday on six charges including stealing, fleeing police and marijuana possession. She had been the only one of the four Ohioans involved in the shootout to maintain her innocence.
Zachary James Potter and Jennifer Jones, made separate plea agreements last month. Potter, 19, received a 10-year sentence and must serve one year in prison. Jones, 21, received a 5-year sentence and must serve 60 to 90 days in detention.
Sutcliff, who was shot in his right arm, is facing a two-year rehabilitation from the wound.
