MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The man who killed a Monongalia County deputy by slamming into his sheriff’s cruiser during a high-speed chase pleaded guilty Monday to related charges.

Jared Green, who was previously convicted in Pennsylvania for causing the 2012 death of Sgt. Todd May, pleaded guilty to third-offense DUI and two charges connected to fleeing a police officer. Green faces five to 18 years in prison on the newer charges. He is already serving a 25- to 50-year sentence on a third-degree murder conviction in Pennsylvania.

May was in his cruiser near the Pennsylvania-West Virginia state line when Green—traveling south on Interstate 79—slammed into the cruiser. The police chase started near Morgantown before stretching into Pennsylvania and turning back toward Morgantown.

No sentencing date has been set in connection with Monday’s conviction.

    State of WV seriously needs to revamp their judicial system. Seems that we let most of our hard criminals cut plea bargains. At least the state of PA has the balls to give this guy a more appropriate sentence, but still not close to what he deserves.

    RiP Sgt. May! I hope your memory helps to keep the roads safe out there.

    Let's see if the Judge has the testicular aptitude to tack the maximum sentence 17years & 364 days + 1 day to be severed consecutively to the PA sentence. In other words, when PA finishes, you get the full 18 yr vacation in Mt Olive to get to that 1 DAY.

      Let's hope so.
