(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The U.S. Attorney's office wants a harsher prison sentence for a Utah man who pleaded guilty to shooting a police officer in the leg.

Craig Garrett could face up to ten years in federal prison for the October fourth shooting of Logan police officer Mark Robinson. He is scheduled to be sentenced Friday by U-S District Judge Tena Campbell.

Garrett likely faces only 27-to-33 months under the sentencing guidelines. But the U-S attorney's office says those guidelines do not account for the fact that Garrett brought a loaded gun into a crowded health clinic, where the shooting happened.

He was in the clinic talking to a therapist about his suicidal thoughts at the time.
