   The man who shot and paralyzed a Florissant police officer two years ago will spend a lifetime in prison -- two of them, in fact.  Twenty-two year old Brian Cannon Junior was sentenced this morning to two life terms plus 20 years.  

   He had been convicted last month of first-degree assault of a law enforcement officer, two burglary counts, car theft, and other felonies.  

   Officer Mike Vernon had been searching an alley for a suspected burglar in May of 2012 when Cannon popped out of a dumpster and began shooting. Vernon was struck three times and is paralyzed from the waist down. 

   In an interview after Cannon's trial, Vernon told reporters he wanted Cannon to sit in prison and think about the fact that he (Vernon) wasn't going to open the lid to the dumpster where Cannon had been hiding.  Vernon said he wanted Cannon to realize that he wouldn't have been discovered if he'd just kept still.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for stealing sports memorabilia and electronics from an assistant coach for the St. Louis Rams, along with other crimes.

KSDK-TV reports that 25-year-old James Bright of Fenton also pleaded guilty in two other criminal cases at a hearing Tuesday.

Bright and an accomplice were accused of breaking into the Kirkwood home of Rams tight ends coach Rob Boras on New Year's Eve. The theft included NCAA rings and a gold NFL championship ring, along with a TV, a game system and other electronics.

Bright also admitted to burglary and stealing at two other properties.

The second suspect, 27-year-old Jeffrey Medcalf, is expected in court next month to enter a plea.
