Kansas Inmate Sentenced For Attacking Prosecutor

Associated Press - July 28, 2014 6:16 pm

A federal judge has dismissed part of a lawsuit filed by a former University of Kansas rower who says a Jayhawk football player sexually assaulted her in 2015.

A Kansas inmate has been sentenced to more than 21 years in prison for attacking a county prosecutor in a Reno County courtroom.

The Hutchinson News reports the sentence imposed Monday on Michael Sherman, of Hutchinson, will run consecutive to the nearly 14 years he is already serving for molesting a 4-month-old baby.

Sherman apologized in court to Reno County District Attorney Keith Schroeder for the July 2013 assault but indicated he’ll appeal the sentence and his conviction for attempted first-degree murder.

The attack occurred as Sherman was being sentenced for aggravated criminal sodomy. Sherman leaped from his chair and put Schroeder in a headlock before others in the courtroom pulled him away.

Sherman testified last month that he wanted to “go after” Schroeder but did not intend to kill him.
