The officer was hit once in the face and was critically injured, according to the Florida Times-Union.
A Florida detective who was repeatedly shot by a gunman past year pulled out a tube of K-Y jelly in court to taunt his attacker after he was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday. When the officer took his eyes off Rojas momentarily, the 19-year-old began shooting through the windshield of the officer's auto. The officer was sporting a ballistic vest that said "police" on it at the time, WLTV reports.
"I brought a little gift for you", the officer said.
"You are going to need a lot of this", he said, implying that Rojas would be raped while serving his sentence. The then 19-year-old fired at the officer's vehicle, hitting him three times.
Rojas was 19 when he got into an argument with his girlfriend, told her it might be his last day alive and then drove erratically through Jacksonville streets.
Rojas was found guilty by a jury in October of attempted first-degree murder, attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, grand theft auto and fleeing in connection to the 2016 incident.
He also addressed the defendant telling him: "When I brought the fight back to you, you ran like a coward".Читайте также: Batman Ninja Anime Gets Incredible First Trailer, Watch It Here
The Times-Union reported that Rojas appeared "smug" as the officer spoke. "That's when I hear the gunshots, and the glass shattering".
The officer said in court that the incident changed his life forever.
It will be 25 years before Rojas can be considered for parole, according to News4Jax.
Local reports did not identify the undercover officer.
Rojas declined to speak in court and no character witnesses were present at his sentencing hearing.
The officer, who made a full recovery, said in court: 'I will take those bullets instead of a fellow officer and an innocent bystander.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
