GREELEY, Colo. (AP) -- A man shot twice by a Greeley police officer faces up to 100 years in prison after he was convicted on charges that mostly stemmed from a confrontation with police.
The Greeley Tribune reports jurors convicted 28-year-old Joseph Perez on Friday of nine charges in addition to assaulting a police officer.
Sentencing is set for March 10.
Weld Deputy District Attorney Michael Pirraglia argued Perez wanted officers to kill him when he lunged at them with a knife.
Defense attorney Stephanie Stout argued physical evidence proves Perez had dropped the knife and was unarmed.
She said she may file an appeal after sentencing.
