Aug. 09, 2018
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A man who owed about $400,000 in taxes who was convicted of shooting and wounding a Wichita tax agent has been sentenced to nearly 14 years in prison.
Television station KWCH reports that Ricky Wirths was sentenced Thursday.
He was found guilty in June of attempted first-degree murder for shooting Cortney Holloway five times at a Kansas Department of Revenue office in Wichita in September 2017. The shooting happened the same day that Holloway served a tax warrant at Wirth's home.
Before sentencing, Holloway told the court the shooting left him unable to run with his children and made it difficult for him to write. He still has two bullets in his body.
Wirths apologized and said he hopes Holloway's family can forgive him.
