A man accused of shooting at a Uintah County sheriff's deputy in 2012 was sentenced Tuesday to up to 15 years in prison.
Dallas A. Rowley, 68, of Vernal, had pleaded guilty to second-degree felony attempted homicide and third-degree felony evading a police officer for the March 8, 2012 shooting.
On Tuesday, he was sentenced to one to 15 years in prison for the second-degree felony, and zero to five years on the second-degree felony, according to the Vernal Express newspaper. A judge ruled the sentences could be served concurrently.
Rowley was originally charged in 8th District Court with one count of attempted murder, a first-degree felony, and failing to respond to an officer's signal, a third-degree felony.
