HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The man who was found guilty of attacking District Attorney Keith Schroeder during Michael Sherman 2a court hearing has been sentenced to 21 years in prison.

Michael Sherman, 27, was sentenced before Judge Trish Rose Monday morning. A Reno County jury convicted Sherman of attempted first degree murder for attacking Schroeder as he was being sentenced in another case.

During Monday’s sentencing, the defense asked the court for a lesser sentence for Sherman, stating that the only reason so much time was being considered was the fact that the victim was the district attorney. He went on to say that Sherman was simply frustrated. But Rose denied the motion, noting that the attack was not just on Schroeder, but on the court system and a place where people are supposed to feel safe. With that, she sentenced Sherman to a middle-range term of 21 years.

That will be added to the 13 plus years he is already serving in a child molestation case.

    He got more time for attacking a DA than he did for child molestation? Someone tell me in what universe that is right?!

        Only in reno county! That county is the biggest joke and where in any courtroom in reno county do you feel safe??? They set child molesters free on 10 years community corrections and child killers on probation but will send drug offenders to prison for 12-15 years. I lost all faith and the feeling of being safe with the judicial system a long time ago. Corrupt and sickening
