  • IDAHO FALLS, Idaho — An eastern Idaho fugitive wanted on drug charges and captured in Oregon after being shot by police has been sentenced on one of the drug charges she initially faced.
    The Post Register reports (www.postregister.com/node/59526) that 32-year-old Shavon Willard on Thursday in Bonneville County received a five-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to felony possession of a controlled substance.
    She faces additional drug charges in Jefferson County.
    Four officers fired at least 39 rounds on March 6 attempting to arrest Willard and Wayne Pearson in Medford after police say Pearson rammed an occupied police vehicle.
    During the shooting on Hilton Road, Willard suffered two gunshot wounds to her abdomen, one to her right forearm and one to her right eye. Pearson was grazed in the head.
    In May, Willard, 32, pleaded no contest in Jackson County Circuit Court to one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, with a charge of possession of methamphetamine dropped in her case.
    Jackson County Circuit Judge Lorenzo Mejia sentenced her to 18 months' probation, opening the door for her extradition to Idaho.
    Pearson remains in Jackson County Jail awaiting trail on nine felony charges.
