A man who fired shots at a Lincoln police officer won't be getting out of prison anytime soon.

The convictions and prison sentences of John Fair of Lincoln were upheld Tuesday by the Nebraska Court of Appeals.

Authorities claimed Fair sped away from a Lincoln police officer after the officer tried to stop him for driving with a suspended license in 2002.

Fair ran from his vehicle following a pursuit and shot several time at the officer, who returned fire.

Neither man was injured.

Fair was convicted on six counts, including attempted murder, and was sentenced to between 41 and 67 years in prison.

All 13 of Fair's claims argued on appeal were rejected.

The 27-year-old Fair is eligible for parole in 2022.
