Luis Roman, 32, pleaded guilty to eight charges related to the incident, including assault with intent to murder. The Rhode Island Attorney General’s Office announced that Roman was sentenced to 70 years, with 30 to be served at the ACI, and a 40-year, non-parolable suspended sentence. Prosecutors stated that Roman had physically assaulted the female victim before firing at least 13 rounds at the police cruiser, narrowly missing the officer inside.
