Idaho man gets 6-month sentence in trooper assault

Author:

A northcentral Idaho man has been sentenced to just six months behind bars — the maximum — for an assault on a state trooper that resulted in the trooper shooting another man who was attacking him. Ricardo Daniel Rodriguez was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in a case that could have landed him in jail for much longer if the attack hadn't happened on a reservation.
