Cottonwood Man Gets 145 Years For Shooting At Federal Officers

Jack Witt Voris, 47, of Cottonwood, Ariz., was sentenced to 1,750 months’ imprisonment after being found guilty of six counts of assault on a federal officer and weapons offenses by a federal jury in Tucson on Feb. 15, 2018.

The evidence at trial showed that on Oct. 28, 2016, law enforcement agents arrived at a Tucson hotel to serve an arrest warrant on Voris, who was armed with a handgun. Voris shot at the officers, but missed.

After a five-hour standoff with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, Voris eventually surrendered to law enforcement.
