Man Involved in Crash that Killed a Police Officer Sentenced on Meth Charges

May 14, 2018

A Randolph County man is headed to prison on methamphetamine charges.

The U.S. attorney says 35-year-old Jason Stoker of Chester received a 15-year federal prison sentence.

In August 2016, Stoker sold ice to a confidential source working for law enforcement. He admitted that he should be held responsible for distributing between 150 and 500 grams of ice.

Stoker is the man who led 22-year-old Chester Police Officer James Brockmeyer on a high-speed chase in October 2016. During the ensuing pursuit, Officer Brockmeyer lost control of his vehicle, crashed and died.

At sentencing, Officer Brockmeyer's mother and Chester Police Chief Ryan Coffey spoke in open court about the impact of his death. Stoker received an enhanced sentence for his role in the officer's fatal crash.
