Man who murdered VPSO sentenced to 99 years in prison
A man found guilty of killing a Village Public Safety Officer in 2013 was sentenced to 99 years in prison Thursday.
Leroy Dick, Jr., 44, was found guilty of first-degree murder last year for shooting and killing Officer Thomas Madole in March 2013. Madole — who was unarmed — was responding to a domestic violence call in Manokotak, located about 25 miles southwest of Dillingham, when he was killed.
Dick’s parole was denied, according to state prosecutor Gregg Olson. He can apply for a sentence modification after he serves 49 years.
A bill to allow VPSOs to carry firearms was signed into law following the shooting death.
