Ex-cop and cop shooter both sentenced in DelCo court

An ex-cop and a man who shot a cop were both sentenced in separate incidents in Delaware County Court today.

Former Ridley Township cop Brian Decker, 34, was ordered to serve six months probation and undergo anger management classes  for assaulting a Wawa clerk in December 2009 after he became irate when she asked for his identification to purchase chewing tobacco.
 
Decker was  found guilty of simple assault and harassment by a Delaware County judge following a nonjury trial in September. The Wawa worker, 43-year-old Monique Bronson, said Decker punched her in the face during the incident and that she’d had trouble with him before on several occasions when she asked him for i.d. Bronson filed a civil suit in the case earlier this month.
 
In the other case, a man who shot an Upper Darby police officer earlier this year was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in state prison.
 
Marvin Marmolejos, 27,  pleaded guilty to shooting Ofc. Raymond Blohm four times after Blohm caught him smoking weed and drinking openly on the streets of Upper Darby in May while he was on probation. 
 
Blohm, a 31-year-old father of two, survived the incident and managed to return fire and shoot Marmolejos four times Blohm has not yet returned to work and Marmolejos still has a bullet in his back as a result of the shootout.
