Cong Xu’s sentence was part of a plea agreement after the 22-year-old Chinese national pleaded guilty in February to assault and burglary.
Cong Xu, a Chinese national living in Brooklyn, pleaded guilty Tuesday to the shooting of Officer Mohit Arora following a New Hyde Park home invasion in August 2013.
Cong Xu, 21, and Renhang Qui, 22, both from Brooklyn, were charged with burglary, attempted robbery and criminal possession of a weapon. Xu is also charged with attempted murder of a police officer.
An officer who police said was responding to a report of a home burglary was shot and injured early Wednesday morning on Long Island.
