Louisiana Man Gets 115 Years for Shooting Officers

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 30-year-old Baton Rouge man has been sentenced to 115 years in prison for shooting and wounding two police officers after he led them on a car chase following a traffic stop in 2008.
State District Judge Tony Marabella sentenced Christopher Joseph Johnson on Monday to the maximum 50
years on each of two counts of attempted first-degree murder of a police officer, and 15 years on a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The judge ordered the three terms to run consecutively.
Johnson pleaded guilty to those charges in October.
The wounded Baton Rouge police officers, Myron Daniels and Brannon Ogden, are back at work. Both were in court Monday.
