FARMINGTON — Brian Lane Harris, the Layton man who shot his girlfriend before being shot in the head by Layton Police was sentenced to serve five years probation.

Harris, 24, was in 2nd District Court Thursday, where Judge Robert Dale sentenced him to serve a year in jail with credit given for time served. Harris was also ordered to enter the Northern Utah Community Correctional Center in Ogden as part of his probation.

Harris pleaded no contest in November to three third-degree felony counts of aggravated assault involving domestic violence and one count of obstruction of justice, even though he said he could not remember the shooting because of his brain injury.

The no-contest plea means that Harris admits the prosecution has enough evidence to prove he did shoot Kayla Lane on March 21, 2012.

Harris was shot by police after he failed to stop when ordered to.

Police were called to the home the couple shared in Layton and found Harris outside the home. Police reports at the time said officers were concerned that Harris, who had reportedly already shot one person, was headed back inside the home to get a gun.

Police said they tried tasering him twice. The first attempt missed and the second did not stop him. He was then shot by police. The officer was later cleared by the Davis County Attorney's Office.

Harris has been at the Davis County Jail without bail since July 25, 2013, after he was returned from the Utah State Hospital for a mental competency evaluation.
