Alabama Woman Sentenced For Shooting at State Trooper

A central Alabama woman has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for shooting at a state trooper.

Attorney General Luther Strange said in a statement Monday that Janice Green of Perry County will also have to serve 78 months on a federal weapons charge after her 30-year sentence.

Strange says Green shot at a member of a law enforcement team that was trying to serve a search warrant at her home. Investigators said the woman was accused of being involved in a plot to kill a circuit judge and an agent in the attorney general’s office.

Strange says Green’s mother, Marie Billingsley, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit assault, but Green was found not guilty after a witness changed his testimony.
