Berget Death Sentence Reversed



Bookmark and Share

The South Dakota Supreme Court has reveresed the death sentence for Rodney Berget.

Berget was sentenced to death by lethal injection last year for his role in the killing of correctional officer Ronald Johnson. Co-defendent Eric Robert was executed for the same crime in October.

Berget's case was argued before the South Dakota Supreme Court on October 1, 2012. In a 63-page written opinion, the justices have reversed the death sentence because they say the circuit court should not have considered statements Berget made to a psychiatrist.
