Tyler Janvosky

The sentence is 35 years in prison for the man who shot Waseca Police Officer Arik Matson in the head.

Tyler Janvosky was sentenced Friday after pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted murder of a peace officer in a deal with prosecutors. Janovsky shot Matson in January when four Waseca officers were responding to a report of a suspicious person. He got 20 years for shooting Matson and 15 for firing at the other officers.

Janvosky apologized in court and said he hopes Matson makes a full recovery.
