A SIOUX CITY MAN CONVICTED OF TWO COUNTS OF ATTEMPTED MURDER AND FOUR COUNTS OF FIRST DEGREE ROBBERY IS SCHEDULED TO BE SENTENCED TO PRISON TUESDAY MORNING.

THE HEARING FOR 19 YEAR OLD ISAIAH MOTHERSHED WILL TAKE PLACE AT 10AM IN WOODBURY COUNTY DISTRICT COURT.

IN OCTOBER, A JURY CONVICTED MOTHERSHED OF THOSE CRIMES, WHICH INCLUDED THE SHOOTING OF SIOUX CITY POLICE OFFICER RYAN MORITZ EARLIER THIS YEAR.

MOTHERSHED’S ATTORNEY, MATTHEW METZGAR, HAD FILED A MOTION FOR A NEW TRIAL FOR HIS CLIENT ON NOVEMBER 4TH AND A MOTION FOR ACQUITTAL BACK IN OCTOBER.

MOTHERSHED WAS ALSO TO HAVE UNDERGONE A PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION AS PART OF A PRE-SENTENCE INVESTIGATION.

THOSE ISSUES WILL BE ADDRESSED BEFORE SENTENCING TAKES PLACE.
