GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) - A woman who was convicted of driving at a police officer and striking him has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office said in a news release that 35-year-old Jessica McQueen was sentenced Monday in Glen Burnie District Court. She was convicted last week of second-degree assault on a law enforcement officer and other offenses.
Prosecutors say on Dec. 5, 2015, a security guard at the Firehouse Pub in Pasadena was stabbed during a fight. Authorities say after the stabbing, McQueen drove away, striking county police Cpl. Larry Adams. Adams sustained shoulder injuries, and was treated and released.
Prosecutors say the man who was with McQueen entered an Alford plea to the stabbing.
Adams is the same officer who was shot in the line of duty in Cape St. Claire at a 7-Eleven back in April 2015.
Adams returned to work last November, about seven months after he was shot.
