GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - A 27-year-old man shot twice by a Greeley police officer has been sentenced to 88 years in prison for 10 convictions that mostly stemmed from a confrontation with officers.

The Greeley Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2ngYiv7 ) that Joseph Perez was sentenced this past week by District Judge Thomas Quammen.

Perez was found guilty in January of various charges, including first-degree assault on a police office.

Eight of the 10 criminal charges Perez was found guilty of stemmed from Jan. 25, 2016, when Greeley police say he lunged at them with a knife.

Addressing the court, Joseph apologized and thanked the officers who responded that night.
