Court upholds Berget's death sentence

by

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AN) - The South Dakota Supreme Court has unanimously upheld the death sentence of Rodney Berget.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says the crime leaves no alternative but to protect the public through the impostion of the death penalty.

The Court said "the State has proven the aggravating evidence against Berget is overwhelming beyond a reasonable doubt, thereby negating any claim of Constitutional error."

The Court found that Berget's death sentence "is not excessive given the suffering endured by Sioux Falls Corrections Officer Ron Johnson."
