BATON ROUGE - A 20-year-old man has pleaded guilty in the shooting injury last November of a Baton Rouge police officer working a private security detail.

John L. Butler was sentenced to two years in prison, followed by four years of active supervised probation, after Butler pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a firearm on a police officer.

Butler's co-defendant, Rico Graham, pleaded guilty last month to the same charge and was
sentenced to 18 months in prison, followed by five years of active supervised probation.

Butler and Graham were accused of shooting Maj. Patricia Tauzin around midnight Nov. 1, 2009, in the rear parking lot of the McKinley Alumni Center.
