OMAHA, Nebraska — An Omaha man who stabbed and wounded a police officer has been sentenced to prison.

A Douglas County judge on Tuesday sentenced 30-year-old Gary Jackson to two consecutive sentences of 10 to 25 years. Jackson previously pleaded guilty to felony assault on a police officer and being a felon in possession of a weapon.

Jackson will be eligible for parole in 22 ½ years.

Officer Sophia Jordan was injured in June while responding to a report that a man who had been banned from a convenience store was trying to get fuel.

Jackson attacked Jordan as she got out of her police car. The 14-year police veteran was stabbed in the shoulder and remains on limited duty.
