A 31-year-old man accused of shooting a South Jordan police officer in 2010 was sentenced Friday to 20 years in federal prison.

Troy Phil Cabibi had pleaded guilty in July in Utah's U.S. District Court to assault of a federal officer, discharge of a firearm during a crime of violence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

In addition to his prison sentence, Cabibi must also serve 60 months of supervised released and pay $132,591.52 in restitution.

Cabibi, a convicted felon with an extensive criminal record, was charged with shooting South Jordan Police officer Steven Gerber in the leg the night of Aug. 26, 2010.

Gerber was part of a U.S. Marshals-led Joint Criminal Apprehension Team attempting to serve an arrest warrant on Cabibi at an apartment near 3100 S. 300 East.

The arrest warrant alleged Cabibi had violated his parole by using methamphetamine while driving and failed to complete required substance-abuse therapy.

Cabibi had previously been sentenced to 1-to-15 years for manslaughter in the 1998 shooting death of Arcides Saldigan, 21, in the parking lot of a Midvale convenience store.

Cabibi was paroled in July 2009.
