GOODLAND, Kan. (AP) _ A California woman will spend more than 13 years in prison for shooting at two Kansas Highway Patrol troopers during a chase last year on Interstate 70.
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says 31-year-old Piper Lacey Stout-Briese was sentenced Thursday in Sherman County District Court. She pleaded no contest to two counts of attempted second-degree murder for the shooting in January 2011.
Stout-Briese, of Palmdale, Calif., was a passenger in a car driven by Anthony Patrick when it was stopped in northwestern Kansas for a tag violation. Patrick drove off, and Stout-Briese fired shots from a .22-caliber rifle that struck the troopers' vehicle during the ensuing chase.
Patrick pleaded no contest earlier to the same charges and received the same sentence.
