ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Russell Huertas was sentenced to life in prison by Judge John Smith, Wednesday afternoon.
On Tuesday, Huertas was found guilty of attempted capital murder and aggravated assault of a public servant. The sentences will run concurrent.
District Attorney Bobby Bland said, "This quick verdict and maximum sentence sends a strong message of support for law enforcement officers and the risks they take every day."
Back in March of 2015, Huertas stabbed Officer Raymond Feril in the back after a foot chase.
