Weinhaus Sentenced to 63 Years

Jeffery Weinhaus, the man who opened fire on the Missouri Highway Patrol officers, will spend the rest of his life behind bars. Franklin County prosecuting attorney Bob Parks said the sentence was handed down Monday morning, about a month after being found guilty of assault on a law enforcement officer and armed criminal action. Parks says Weinhaus was sentenced to 30 years for the assault on law enforcement, 30 years for the armed criminal action, 2 years for felony possession of morphine and 12 months for misdemeanor possession of marijuana, all to be served concurrently in the Missouri Department of Corrections. Weinhaus pulled a gun on a highway trooper back in September of last year at the MFA gas station in St. Clair.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
