A Charlottesville man on trial for assaulting two Charlottesville police officers has been found guilty by a jury.
Kerry Cook was on trial Friday for the third time for assaulting Officer Jeremy Carper and Detective William Sclafani.
It happened in August 2004.
Officers said they responded to a disturbance call. They found Cook hiding, a fight ensued, and Cook was shot in the stomach.
The jury recommended Cook serve one year in prison for assaulting Carper and three years in prison for the assault against Sclafani.
