Man Who Tried to Kill Girlfriend, Stashed Guns, Led Police in 10-Hour Standoff Gets 35-to-Life
Jason Dana Paul, the man convicted this spring for the attempted murder of his girlfriend and leading authorities to hold a 10-hour-long standoff outside their Tarzana home has been sentenced to serve 35 years to life in prison.
Paul, 40, was arrested on February 28, 2010 after keeping police at bay outside the couple's townhouse for 10 hours. He had barricaded himself after shooting his girlfriend, then 39 years old.
A search of the home uncovered numerous weapons, including a machine gun.
In May, Paul was convicted by a jury on multiple felonies, "including attempted first-degree murder for shooting his girlfriend, assault on a peace officer with a semiautomatic firearm, possession of a machine gun, possession of an assault weapon, possession of a deadly weapon and mayhem," according to a release issued by Los Angeles County officials.
