Man Gets 47 Years Prison For Shooting Ohio Police Officer

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man has been sentenced to 47 years in prison for shooting and wounding an Ohio police detective and for shooting at members of a SWAT team conducting a no-knock search of his home.

The Blade reports 39-year-old Jamaine Hill was sentenced Thursday in Toledo immediately after a jury found him guilty of seven counts of felonious assault for shooting at officers in November.

Detective Jason Picking was shot in the face during the raid. He’s back to work but faces additional surgeries.

Lucas County Judge James Bates told Hill that police showed unusual restraint in not shooting him.

Hill testified at trial he thought someone was breaking into his house and didn’t know it was police officers trying to get inside. His attorney says an appeal is planned.
