Roberson Changed Plea in Deputy Sleeper Case


A man who's combative behavior was a factor in a Burleigh County Deputies death has been released from jail.

Robbie Roberson has pleaded guilty to terrorizing, preventing arrest and fleeing.

His charges center around a September 2011 traffic stop where Roberson threatened to kill deputies.

Authorities say it was Roberson's combative actions that caused so much stress, Burleigh County Deputy Bryan Sleeper had a heart attack and died.

Roberson was sentenced to five years in prison with credit for the two years he has been in jail.

The rest of his sentence is suspended.

Roberson was released from the Burleigh County jail and will be on probation for five years.

He is required to continue to take his medication and treatment while on probation.

Roberson's mental health competency has been an issue during the course of this case.
