Jerome Ersland was convicted in the shooting death of 16-year-old Antwun Parker back in May 2009. Ersland said the shooting was self-defense during a robbery attempt of his pharmacy.

Ersland was sentenced to two more years after he was found with Fentanyl painkiller patches. His son, Jeffrey Ersland pleaded no contest for a charge of bringing drugs into prison.
