A South Side man was sentenced to 60 years in prison for shooting a Chicago Police gang detective in the back while the officer was attempting to question him.

Bobby Selvie, 27,shot Chicago PD's Det. Patrick Johnson in the lower back while Johnson and his partner were investigating gang activity in the 800 block of West 50th Place in 2007.

Selvie was sentenced on Monday.

The CS-T story says the jury acquitted Selvie on the more serious charge of attempted murder. One has to wonder on what grounds they decided that shooting a man in the back like this was without the intent to kill. Hopefully 60 years really means 60 years but it probably doesn't.
