Guilty verdict for man accused of shooting a Klamath Co. Sheriff’s deputy

Klamath Falls, Ore. – The man accused of shooting and wounding a Klamath County Sheriff’s deputy was found guilty on late Wednesday afternoon.

The shooting happened in August of 2014 when Deputy Jason Weber pulled over a car for not having a front license plate. 32-year-old William “Jack” Parkerson was accused of shooting Weber once in the face, and once in the stomach.

Jason Weber is continuing to recover from his wounds, and has since taken a job with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

The jury reached the unanimous guilty verdict after just 15 minutes of deliberation. Parkerson was found guilty of attempted aggravated murder with a firearm and assault in the first degree with a firearm.

No date has been set for the sentencing phase of the trial, which is expected to take three days.
