A Ulysses man has been sentenced to 32 months in custody of the Department of Corrections for an April 2009 shooting in Grant County.
Ramiro R. Garza Jr., 32, pleaded guilty in October to aggravated assault and aggravated criminal use of a weapon in connection with the April shooting of Esequiel Gutierrez, 32, Ulysses.
He was sentenced last week in Grant County District Court.
For aggravated assault, he was sentenced to 32 months and received 20 percent credit for good time served.
On the count of aggravated criminal use of a weapon, he was sentenced to eight months in jail with 20 percent credit for good time served.
The sentences will run consecutively. He was given credit for 100 days served.
He also was ordered to pay restitution to the Attorney General's Crime Victim Fund in the amount of $8,000 to be used to reimburse Gutierrez for lost wages from the shooting. He also is ordered to pay $73,102 in additional restitution, according to Grant County Attorney Robin Hathaway.
Garza's wife, Lexy M. Garza, was sentenced in November for her involvement in the incident.
