A man involved in a break-in in which a Lawton police officer was shot twice last year has been sentenced on four of six charges.

Jamal Johnson received a sentence of life on the charge of conspiracy to commit burglary and a total of 39 years on three others. He was found guilty in June. Punishment on the first two counts of shooting with intent to kill resulted in a hung jury in that trial and those have been reset for the September docket.

Lawton police responded to a report of a break-in in February of 2013 and say when they arrived and tried to stop two suspects they were fired on. One officer was shot in the hip and leg, and recovered. The other suspect, Demetrius Miller was shot four times and also recovered..

Miller has been sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years.

In addition to the life sentence Johnson received today, the sentences of 18 years, 15 years and 6 years on charges related to the case will be served consecutively.
