10 Years For Man in WVC Police Station Shooting
(KUTV) A man convicted of waving a gun at West Valley police department employees will spend 10 years in prison for the crime.

A judge sentenced James Kammeyer Monday morning. Kammeyer pleaded guilty to three felony counts stemming from the April incident.

Kammeyer's attorney asked for jail time and probation in the case and said that Kammeyer did not intend to hurt anyone else, only himself.

The attorney cited Kammeyer's severe depression and the influence of antidepressant medications that he says did not work for his client. Kammeyer spoke in court, offering an apology to West Valley police, his family and the clerk behind the desk at the West Valley City police department that day.

The judge took into account depression as a cause of the incident, but said Kammeyer crossed a line when he chose to include other people in his suicide attempt.

The judge denied probation and handed down a prison sentence that carries a maximum of 10 years, rather than the 15 year maximum he could have imposed.

The board of pardons will determine how much of that time is actually served. Kammeyer could get credit for more than 200 days already spent in jail.
