CBS Baltimore

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A man who was shot several times after he pointed a gun at two police officers has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

James Jardina of Myersville attended a sentencing hearing Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court in a wheelchair. The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports that he has undergone 13 surgeries for injuries sustained when officers shot him.

Jardina pleaded guilty to first-degree assault.
