Maryland Man Gets Life for State Trooper's Death

A man who shot an off-duty Maryland state trooper who kicked him out of a restaurant was ordered Thursday to spend the rest of his life behind bars by a judge who called him a threat to society and liable to kill again if free.

Cyril Cornelius Williams, 29, made no apologies to the family of Wesley Brown as he was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole plus 25 years. His lawyers, who made no arguments during the sentencing hearing, said he maintained his innocence and was appealing the conviction.

"Your vengeful acts deprived our community of a young public servant and of a crusader for the at-risk youth of this county," Prince George's County Circuit Court Judge Sean Wallace said in imposing the maximum possible sentence for the June 2010 murder.

Wesley Brown made the ultimate sacrifice for the citizens of Maryland. Williams should have suffered the same fate.

Everyone's life is of EQUAL importance so everyone who is convicted should get life without the chance of parole. Not just for the death of a police officer. The LEO's life is no more valuable than anyone else's.
