A Maplewood man is headed to prison for offering a reward to anyone who killed Maplewood Police Officers.
William Lawrence first came to the attention of authorities in February of 2012. Officers responded to a call and arrested him. During the incident, officers discovered marijuana plants and firearms in his apartment. After being released, Lawrence repeatedly demanded his firearms be returned, but police were holding them as evidence.
Frustrated, Lawrence then placed an ad on Craigslist that offered $1 million to anyone who murdered an officer. Lawrence will spend six years behind bars.
