1-year sentence in WA trooper killing case

Posted: Updated:

PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - A woman who was with a man when he killed Washington State Patrol Trooper Tony Radulescu has been sentenced to a year in jail.

Nineteen-year-old Megan Mollet was sentenced Tuesday in Port Orchard. She was convicted last month of rendering criminal assistance. Kitsap County prosecutors asked for a two-year sentence. With credit for time served, she could be out in nine months.

Mollet was riding with Joshua Blake when he was pulled over Feb. 23 on Highway 16 near Gorst. Blake shot Radulescu and fled. Blake later shot and killed himself. Of six people accused of criminal assistant or interfering with police in the case, five have pleaded guilty or been convicted and one awaits trial.
