MEDFORD, Wis. (AP) - A 28-year-old man convicted of shooting and wounding a Taylor County sheriff’s deputy last year has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.

WSAW-TV (https://bit.ly/10bKx3K ) reports Alexander Schneider will be on 20 years extended supervision after he’s released from prison.

Investigators say Schneider shot Deputy Chad Kowalczyk in the stomach Sept. 8, 2013. Kowalczyk had gone to Schneider’s home to investigate a woman’s complaint that Schneider had sent her at least 16 text messages that day, in violation of a restraining order.

The deputy was released from the hospital about a week after he was shot.

Court documents say Schneider admitted he was under the influence of synthetic marijuana at the time and was feeling suicidal.
