OMAHA — A man shot in the neck by an Omaha police officer being dragged has been sent to prison.

Micah Taylor, 22, was sentenced Monday to 31 to 52 years. He'd pleaded guilty in April to assaulting an officer and operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest. Prosecutors dropped two related charges in exchange.

Police say Taylor was shot March 8 last year after being stopped as part of a police sting. Police say Taylor struggled with Officer Dave Staskiewicz when he refused to get out of his car, then took off in the car, briefly dragging Staskiewicz.

Staskiewicz fired his gun three times as he was dragged, hitting Taylor once.
