Mollet sentenced to 12 months in jail
Megan Mollet, the witness in the killing of Washington State Patrol Trooper Tony Radulescu, was sentenced Tuesday morning to 12 months in Kitsap County Jail.
Mollet, 19, was handed out the maximum concurrent sentence for rendering criminal assistance in the first degree, a felony, and lying to police, a gross misdemeanor.
Kitsap County Judge Leila Mills denied Kitsap County Deputy Prosecutor Tim Drury's request to have Mollet serve her convictions consecutively, saying a consecutive sentence could justify double jeopardy.
The 19-year-old sat quietly in the courtroom as Gina Miller, Radulescu's girlfriend, and others encouraged the judge to impose the maximum sentence.
"Nothing could be said or done to bring my precious Tony back," Miller said.
After 28-year-old Joshua Blake shot and killed Radulescu in the morning hours of Feb. 23, he and Mollet fled to a residence on Sidney Road in Port Orchard. It was there that Mollet lied to police, saying she did not know Blake and had not been with him the night Radulescu was shot. On Tuesday, Mollet apologized for lying to police, and told the packed courtroom she was sorry for the loss of Radulescu.
"I do regret what I did," Mollet said.
It is unknown if Mollet's defense attorney will seek an appeal.
