OMAHA, Neb. — An Omaha woman has been sentenced to 11 years in prison after being convicted of pulling a gun on a paramedic.
Justine Dubois, 24, was sentenced Friday in Douglas County District Court and must serve more than nine years before she is eligible for release.
As part of a plea bargain, she pleaded no contest in November to several charges in relation to the July 1 shooting.
Prosecutors said Dubois faked a seizure while being arrested for allegedly stealing a car. In an ambulance taking her to a hospital, she pulled a gun and started making threats. Police said two shots were fired as Dubois and a paramedic struggled over the gun.
One shot hit Dubois in the leg. The other shot caused minor wounds to the paramedic's abdomen.
