A teenager, who severely injured a police officer after hitting him in a stolen car and dragging him several metres, will be sentenced in the Ipswich Children's court today.
The 17 year old - who can't be named - pleaded guilty to several charges including acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and unlawful use of a motor vehicle at Booval in June.
Ipswich Constable Peter McAulay has spent months battling debilitating injuries and ongoing pain since the incident at Booval last year.
