Man who shot Oregon deputy sentenced to prison

SALEM, Ore. — A man who shot an Oregon sheriff’s deputy during a chase through a snowy Christmas tree field in December pleaded guilty to attempted murder and was sentenced to 22 years in prison.

The Statesman Journal newspaper reported that Cody Edwards asked for forgiveness at Friday’s sentencing and told Marion County Deputy Jim Buchholz he prays for him often.

Buchholz said he returned to work at the sheriff’s office only this week after spending months dealing with the trauma.

The case began when Silverton police started chasing a stolen vehicle. County deputies found the car abandoned in a field and witnesses said they’d seen a man on foot with multiple guns.

Deputies searched for hours before Buchholz encountered the man, gunshots were exchanged and the deputy was wounded.
