AUBURN – A Garrett man faces up to 100 years in prison after pleading guilty to the attempted murder of two police officers.
42-year-old Joshua D. Mumma entered the plea Wednesday in connection to a traffic stop which turned into an exchange of gunfire in April, 2018. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for May 17 at 1 p.m. in DeKalb Superior Court.
Mumma admitted attempted murder of DeKalb County Sheriff's Deputy Todd McCormick and Garrett Police Officer Alicia Castro. Each carries a possible sentence of 20-40 years.
Along with the attempted murder charges, Mumma pleaded guilty to habitual offender charges, which would add six to 20 years to his sentence.
