The sentencing for Tommy Rollins in the shooting of Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper Brandon Brashear will be rescheduled.
The sentencing hearing for a Grandview man charged with shooting a Missouri State Highway Patrol officer three years ago has been postponed.
The hearing, originally scheduled for Friday afternoon, was put on hold due to the sudden medical emergency of a trial attorney in the case, said Judge W. Stephen Nixon during what was to be the hearing Friday. The attorney, who was working on the case involving the shooting of Trooper Brandon J. Brashear, left the Jackson County Courthouse on a stretcher and was taken to an area hospital.
The hearing was to determine the sentence of 29-year-old Tommy Ray Rollins Jr., who shot and nearly killed Brashear on the side of Interstate 470 in Lee’s Summit near the Lakewood Way exit.
The date for the sentencing had not yet been set, the judge stated.
