Richard Chrisman, who was accused of murder in an on-duty shooting three years ago, pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to manslaughter charges as part of a plea agreement.
Chrisman entered the plea in Maricopa County Superior Court on Wednesday.
As a result of the plea, Chrisman avoids a retrial for second-degree murder in the on-duty shooting death of Daniel Rodriguez in October of 2010.
The same jury that was hung on the second-degree murder charge convicted Chrisman of aggravated assault and animal cruelty in the same case.
Sentencing is set for 1:30 p.m. Dec. 20 before Judge Warren Granville
Sources say Chrisman will face seven to 14 years in prison as part of the plea.
