The man charged with shooting a Sioux City police officer pleaded guilty Thursday.
Twenty-two-year-old Jamal Dean was charged with attempted murder in an April 29th shooting. Police say Dean shot at Officer Kevin McCormick’s squad car during a traffic stop.
McCormick was hit in the head but made a full recovery and is now back at work.
Dean originally entered a not guilty plea in the case but Thursday he changed it and in return charges from another cases were dropped.
The guilty plea carries a maximum sentence of 25-years in prison.
