Tucson man pleads guilty in dog-walker shooting

TUCSON, Ariz. — 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 1/2 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 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.
