A Bloomington man who helped harbor a fugitive charged with murder won't have to spend any time in jail but will be on probation for three years.
Michael V. Spark, 27, pleaded guilty in May in Ramsey County District Court to aiding an offender to avoid arrest. Spark helped Andre Dupree Davis hide from authorities in early December after he was charged with second-degree murder in the Sept. 7 death of Timothy E. Williams in Little Canada.
Davis, who was apprehended three months after the crime, pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting second-degree murder and received a more than 28-year prison sentence.
At Spark's sentencing hearing, District Judge Michael Fetsch stayed imposition of a prison sentence, sentenced him to three years on supervised probation and ordered him to do 40 hours of community service.
