Man who shot Bonner County deputies sentenced to 50 years in prison


BONNER COUNTY, Idaho -The man who pleaded guilty to shooting two Bonner County Sheriff's deputies near Blanchard, Idaho, in January 2017, will spend at least 25 years behind bars, if not more.

32-year-old Adam Foster was sentenced Tuesday to 50 years in prison with the first 25 years guaranteed. He'd be up for parole for the next half.

Foster was convicted of shooting deputies Michael Gagnon and Justin Penn as they were serving an arrest warrant. 

Both men survived and are back on duty, but both say they suffered emotionally, and physically, from the incident.
