The Baltimore County woman who shot her husband at a Washington, D.C., hotel in July 2022 was sentenced to prison.

Shanteari Weems was sentenced Friday to four years in prison, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. She pleaded guilty in November 2022 to shooting her husband, James Weems Jr., saying it was an act of self-defense.

Shanteari Weems said she shot her husband over child sex abuse allegations at her day care center.

James Weems Jr., a retired Baltimore City police officer, was arrested on several sex offense charges. He is scheduled to go to trial in the summer.
