35 Year Sentence in Deputy Shooting Case

Associated Press - November 13, 2015 6:04 am

The Douglas County district attorney has charged a woman with first-degree murder after a 9-month-old child died last year at a day care in Eudora.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Gardner man who took part in a 2013 chase and shootout that injured a sheriff’s deputy has been sentenced to more than 35 years in prison.

38-year-old Jason Perez was ordered to serve the 427-month term for about a dozen crimes he and his then-girlfriend committed on March 11, 2013.

Among his convictions was the shooting of deputy Lucas Powell. Powell was shot after attempting a traffic stop on I-135 that ended in a gunfire exchange neat Potwin.

Perez was also found guilty of attempted murder in August for firing at a Butler County sheriff’s deputy that day, of aiding and abetting attempted first-degree murder, and of auto burglary, fleeing or eluding law enforcement, criminal possession of a firearm, methamphetamine possession, marijuana possession and criminal damage to property.
