A West Virginia man was sentenced today on charges related to the killing of a Monongalia County sheriff’s deputy in 2012.
Jerod Green was convicted in December of killing a sheriff's deputy during a police chase along Interstate 79 in Greene County, Pa.
Today, Circuit Judge Russell Clawges in Monongalia County, W.Va., sentenced Green, 36, to 1 to 3 years on a DUI third offense charge, 3 to 10 years for fleeing an officer causing injury, and 1 to 5 years for fleeing with reckless indifference in connection with the death of Monongalia County Sgt. Todd May.
Judge Clawges ordered that the sentence run consecutively for a total of 5 to 18 years in prison, in addition to running consecutively with Green's 25- to 50-year Pennsylvania sentence.
Green was also ordered to pay $4,000 in fines.
