Kevin Marshall

According to a release on the Monroe County Sheriff’s Facebook page, Kevin D. Marshall was sentenced to the Missouri Department of Corrections for events that occurred in August of 2016. A Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy and an officer with the Monroe City Police Department discharged their duty weapons striking Marshall multiple time following a chase with law enforcement and ultimately a physical assault of another officer.

On April 5, 2018, Marshall plead guilty to first degree assault of a law enforcement officer, unlawful use of a weapon, burglary in the second degree and felony resisting arrest.

Monroe County Prosecuting Attorney Talley Kendrick recommended Marshall be sentenced to twenty (20) years in the Department of Corrections and that the Court deny him probation. Ultimately, Judge Bringer Shepherd followed Kendrick’s recommendation. Marshall will be required to serve no less than 85% of his sentence.

“Our officers serve the community and we expect them to be able to return safely to their homes at the end of the day. Anyone who endangers their lives in this fashion won’t get a recommendation that would allow them to return home to their families or be out in the community. Mr. Marshall’s incarceration will ensure the safety of the community.” Kendrick said afterward.”
