Tucson man pleads guilty in dog-walker shooting

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Tucson man who shot and wounded a dog walker in 2010 has pleaded guilty except insane to two counts of aggravated assault.

Pima County prosecutors said Wednesday that 35-year-old Ronald Michael Motisko will be sentenced March 14.

They say Motisko's plea agreement stipulates he'll be committed to the jurisdiction of the Arizona State Psychiatric Review Board for 7 ½ years and be sent to the state hospital in Phoenix.

But if the board decides Motisko no longer requires treatment and is no longer a danger, it could send him to prison or release him from custody.

The Arizona Daily Star (http://bit.ly/Z0xMCM) says if released, Motisko would remain under the jurisdiction of the board for the remainder of his sentence and could be taken back into custody at any time.
