Fox said she was satisfied with the sentence.
"It fell under the proper guidelines," she said. "I hope that people will recognize the sacrifices police officers make every day. Mr. Green made his choices that day, but unfortunately Sgt. May had no choice."
Fox also added that Green will be given credit for the time he's already served in the case. He had been incarcerated since his arrest last February.
Frank May said he was happy with the sentence.
"Nothing will bring my brother back, but we know he will live on, in spirit and through organ donorship," he said.
Sheriff Al Kisner of the Monongalia County Sheriff's Department said after the sentencing that Green is also facing felony charges in West Virginia as a result of the incident.
