SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Spartanburg man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for shooting a sheriff's deputy, according to the Seventh Judicial Circuit office.

Robert Odell Brown, 29, was found guilty of shooting Deputy Brad James. James was shot twice - once in his neck and once in his face on Nov. 6, 2011 following a chase.

Brown fled the scene and the state, and was eventually caught in Virginia and arrested after a brief standoff with police.

James survived the shooting and resumed his duties with the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office in 2012. Prosecutors said he also testified during Brown's trial.
