NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A judge sentenced John Paul Devillier to 40 years in jail without the benefit of parole or probation, according to a court worker.

Devillier was convicted of shooting a St. Charles Parish corporal directing traffic in a school zone.

A jury found Devillier guilty of attempted murder for the April 2015 shooting of Corporal Burt Hazeltine.

Prosecutors said Devillier became angry after Hazeltine refused to stop traffic for him on Highway 90.

Hazeltine survived being shot in the arm, chest, and eye.
