Jury recommends 60 year sentence for man who shot cop
KENTON COUNTY, Ky. (Angenette Levy) -- A Kenton County jury recommends 60 years in prison for a man convicted of trying to kill a police officer.
The jury convicted Pharo Wilson Tuesday on three counts of attempted murder for firing at Covington police officers in September of 2012 during the investigation of a poker game robbery. One officer was hit in the foot.
Wilson didn't testify in his own defense. His attorney told the jury Wilson grew up around crime and asked for a light sentence. But Commonwealth attorney Rob Sanders said Wilson is a convicted drug dealer who's already been to prison for five years.
A judge will sentence Wilson on March 11.
