Cottonwood Man Sentenced to Over 145 Years for Shooting at Federal Officers

     TUCSON, Ariz. – Today, Jack Witt Voris, 47, of Cottonwood, Ariz., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Jennifer G. Zipps to 1,750 months’ imprisonment.  Voris was found guilty of six counts of assault on a federal officer and weapons offenses by a federal jury in Tucson on Feb. 15, 2018.

“As a society governed by laws, we cannot tolerate assaults on our law enforcement officers,” stated First Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth A. Strange. “Our office is committed to prosecuting these cases, and we thank all of the agencies that assisted in this important investigation.”

The evidence at trial showed that on Oct. 28, 2016, law enforcement agents arrived at a Tucson hotel to serve an arrest warrant on Voris, who was armed with a handgun.  Voris shot at the officers, but missed. After a five-hour standoff with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, Voris eventually surrendered to law enforcement.
