RadioOnFire.com – The last teen who pleaded guilty in the death of Baltimore County police Officer Amy Caprio was sentenced Monday to 30 years in prison.
WBAL-TV 11 reports Darrell Ward will serve five years of probation upon his release.
Ward’s sentence is identical to those of Derrick Matthews and Eugene Genius IV, who also pleaded guilty to felony murder in June as part of a plea deal. The three were in the middle of a burglary at a Perry Hall home when Caprio confronted Dawnta Harris in a stolen Jeep outside.
Caprio blocked its way and ordered Harris out. Harris ducked and the vehicle sped toward Caprio. She fired once, striking the windshield but missing Harris. In May, a jury convicted Harris of felony murder, first-degree murder and auto theft. In May, he was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole, the harshest possible sentence.
