VICTORVILLE, Calif. — It has been a long and arduous two years for San Bernardino County Sheriff's Deputy Paul Solorio who was shot twice after he and two other deputies responded to a Hesperia robbery Aug. 1, 2007.
But the toughest part has been the last two months as Solorio showed up in court five times to give a victim statement at the sentencing of the man who shot him, Joseph Asolelei Mulu, 26. The sentencing was continued four times as lawyers for both sides submitted sentencing motions and arguments.
