Oct 4, 2019 @ 5:30pm
A Saginaw County jury took about two hours to deliver a guilty verdict for 30-year-old Joshua Rosebush Friday. Rosebush, a parolee from Vassar, was on trial for shooting Saginaw Township Police Officer Jeff Koenig in January during a traffic stop. He was found guilty of 26 felony counts stemming from the shooting, including assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, multiple weapons charges and three counts of unlawfully driving away a motor vehicle.
Rosebush was driving a stolen truck when he was pulled over, and stole two other vehicles in his attempt to escape. He was arrested in Shiawassee County. A sentencing date was not immediately set, but Rosebush could get a life prison sentence with the possibility of parole.
