Two men were sentenced on Monday in connection with the shooting of Pottawattamie County deputy. 23-year-old Colton Dineen of Omaha admitted to being the triggerman the early morning of November tenth when deputy Brian Loomis pulled over a stolen SUV and was shot twice in each arm. Dineen was sentenced in Sarpy County to up to 25 years in prison for attempted murder. Under Nebraska law he must serve at least 17 years of that before he’s eligible for parole. 25-year-old Jeremy Clark of LaVista pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting, and reckless use of a firearm causing serious injury. He could serve as little as two years of the ten-year sentence he received on Monday. A third man, Christopher B. Smith, who allegedly handed the gun to Dineen, was sentenced Friday to 6 months in jail. But Pottawattamie County attorney Matt Wilber says now that Nebraska’s done with them, all three will also face trial in Iowa.
