Odessa, TX- An Odessa man pleads guilty to four charges of aggravated assault against a public servant stemming from an incident in June 2012.
In 2012 40-year-old Gregory Stoneman pointed a gun at four Odessa Police Officers during a standoff situation.
According to the CBS 7 News archives, officers say Stoneman was threatening himself with a gun on the 4600 block of Conley at 10:45 Tuesday night.
Officers heard shots fired inside the home, and swat was called in. A little later, Stoneman reportedly walked out of his home with a gun. Officers then fired shots at him.
He was taken to the hospital and police say he listed in critical, but stable condition.
According to Ector County District Attorney Bobby Bland, Stoneman received 10 years in prison and a $2,000 fine.
Bland says, “I, along with the Odessa police Department officers threatened, felt it was important that someone who endangers their lives as well as the lives of his neighbors should be punished in this manner.”
