Francisco Saucedo Given 14 Life Sentences

The man who shot and injured a DPS trooper in Tyler will spend the rest of his life behind bars.   Francisco Saucedo, 39, of Tulsa OK., was given 14 life sentences Monday. Two of those sentences will be stacked, which means Saucedo would be 99 years old before he's eligible for parole.

Saucedo plead guilty last month to 14 counts of aggravated assault on a public servant.   Saucedo and his accomplice, Ramon Ramos, of Tulsa, OK, led police on a chase through Tyler. During the chase, they shot and injured DPS trooper Steven Stone and shot at 13 other officers.

Saucedo and Ramos were armed with machine guns, hand guns and bullet proof vests. Officials found marijuana in their vehicle.  

Ramos received the same sentence, after pleading guilty in July. Officials with the Smith County District Attorney's Office say the men have not said what they were doing in Tyler.
