Tomlin Sentenced

A man who repeatedly shot at a Wiregrass officer's home and car found out his fate.

A probation hearing was held in a Geneva County courtroom for Jason Tomlin.

In January 2004, the 24-year-old fired several gunshots at Geneva County Sheriff Greg Ward's Hartford home. One bullet barely missed his daughter's bedroom.

Last year, Tolling pled guilty to several charges stemming from the incident and was sentenced to 10-years in prison.

A judge denied defense counsel's request for the sentence to be reduced to probation.

Sheriff Ward said “My children had a belief that they were safe in their home. He’s changed all that, he's going to jail and that's what he's done.”

Tomlin reportedly fired at the home and car in revenge for Sheriff Ward's "crack down" on the crystal-meth trade.
