Lutz was convicted on all four charges against him, including filing a false police report and making a false 911 call.

The former Eaton County Sheriff's sergeant's shooting last year sparked a manhunt for a black gunman he said shot him while he was on patrol.

Prosecutors he shot himself and made up the story of a gunman.

The defense said in court the sheriff's department botched the investigation and let the gunman get away.
