St. Paul man pleads guilty to role in killing of Maplewood Police Sergeant
A 21-year-old St. Paul man, charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and kidnapping in the ambush slaying of Maplewood police Sgt. Joe Bergeron two months ago, pleaded guilty Thursday to both counts.
Joshua M. Martin will be sentenced to 35 1/2 years in prison as part of the plea arrangement in Ramsey County District Court.
Bergeron, 49, was shot in the head in his squad car east of St. Paul's Lake Phalen while he was responding to a report of a carjacking.
A jogger saw Jason Jones shoot Bergeron, according to the criminal complaint. Martin and Jones were suspects in the carjacking.
Jones, 21, was shot and killed by St. Paul police officer David Longbehn after the two struggled during the ensuing manhunt.The opinions given in my signatures & threads DO NOT reflect the opinions, views, policies, and/or procedures of my employing agency.

He distracted the officer so the other one could commit murder.
People who kill officers need a sentence that is fitting. I guess Minnesota doesn't have the death penalty, neither does Wisconsin.http://www.odmp.org/officer/16551-de...l-eron-shannon
Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
