He’s charged with over a half dozen counts, including first-degree attempted murder in the June 23 shooting of Trooper Ryan Thorp as Thorp responded to a domestic incident at Sunrise Terrace in Deposit.

Authorities were called to the home shortly after 9 p.m. and as they were talking to an alleged victim, shots rang out.  Thorp was wounded in the shoulder area and required several surgeries.

In July, Mawhiney’s attorney claimed the alleged incident was grossly out of character for his client and successfully got Mawhiney released on bail, a move that outraged the Troopers Union.

The Deposit man pleaded not guilty to a nine-count indictment on July 14.  In addition to first-degree attempted murder, Mawhiney is charged with other attempted murder counts and several counts of assault, including felony aggravated assault on a police officer.

Mawhiney could face 20 years to life in prison if convicted of first-degree attempted murder.
