Colorado Springs man sentenced in death of 14-year-old – The Denver Post

More than two years after the fatal shooting of a 14-year-old boy in Memorial Park, the last of three men linked to the crime has been sentenced.

Raymond Rogan Sr. was ordered to serve five years in prison for accessory to murder in the July 2015 death of Desmond Smith. The term is at the low end of the four to eight years he had faced under an October plea agreement. Prosecutors say he tried to get rid of the murder weapon and shell casings afterward to protect two family members who were involved – a son and brother – dealing what could have been a fatal blow to a Colorado Springs police investigation.

“The death of Desmond Smith would have gone without justice,” prosecutor Amy Fitch said in requesting a tough sentence.
