(Tacoma) - An appeals court has upheld the conviction of a man who tried to kill a Clallam County sheriff's deputy.
This week the court ruled Scott Davis can be sent to prison for 25 years in the 2009 shooting in Sekiu.
Davis was convicted two years ago of first-degree assault and first-degree murder charges for shooting deputy Bill Cortani near a beach cabin.
Cortani was checking on a trespassing call in January of 2009 when Davis began shooting. After the exchange of gunfire, Cortani was injured in the arm, while Davis suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was airlifted to a Seattle hospital.
Davis had pleaded not-guilty by reason of insanity.
