Jorge Banda was sentenced to life without parole for the shooting death of Tulare County Sheriff’s Detective Kent Haws.
The court case and eventual conviction took years in part because of questions about Banda's sanity.
25-year-old Banda of Ivanhoe confessed to shooting Haws back in December of 2007.
A jury found Banda guilty of murder this past August and then he was found legally sane in September.
