PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - The last of six people charged with helping the man who killed a Washington State Patrol trooper in February has been convicted of making a false statement to police and sentenced to six months in jail.

But a Kitsap County Superior Court jury on Monday acquitted 31-year-old Andrew Bartlett of rendering criminal assistance.

The Kitsap Sun reports all six people charged with helping Joshua Blake were convicted or pleaded guilty to rendering criminal assistance or making a false statement.

Blake killed himself after shooting Trooper Tony Radulescu (rad-ihl-EHS'-kyoo) near Gorst.
