Lake Nebagamon Woman to Spend 17 Years in Prison for Shooting at Officers

A Lake Nebagamon woman will spend the next 17 years behind bars for a shooting incident and armed standoff with Douglas County authorities. 

23-year-old Jessica Gehl pleaded no contest to four counts of recklessly endangering safety in October. 

Gehl was originally charged with three counts of attempted first degree intentional homicide and one count of recklessly endangering safety, however those charges were amended. 

The charges stem from an incident in October of 2014 where police responded to Gehl’s home after her mother says Gehl pulled a gun on her.

When officers arrived, Gehl fired three shots at them.

Detective Brad Hoyt returned gunfire, hitting Gehl on her lower right side. 

She was hospitalized with a minor injury. 

Gehl will serve 17 years in prison, and 15 years of extended supervision once she is released.
