Ector Co. jury finds man guilty of aggravated assault of a public servant

ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) - The Ector County District Attorney's office announced a jury found an Odessa man guilty on two counts of aggravated assault of a public servant.

Cameron Marson was sentenced by the jury to life in prison on each count, as well ordered to pay a $10,000 fine.

Marson's co-defendant, David Baca, was found guilty in December of 2015 and sentenced to 75 years.

Marson and Baca were accused of leading police on a high speed chase through Ector and Andrews County back in October of 2013.

Officers were attempting to locate a stolen car and eventually located it at the intersection of Yukon and Highway 385 in Odessa.

The suspects shot at police then continued north on Highway 385 but officers did not return fire due to the safety of people in the area.

About seven or eight miles south of Andrews, the vehicle stopped and fired at officers again. This time officers returned fire injuring Marson.

After that, Baca got out of a vehicle and hijacked another car, with two people inside, and led police on another chase before getting into a shootout with officers.

After negotiations with authorities, both were ultimately taken into custody.
