Former Chicago police Officer has been sentenced to 6 ¾ years in prison for shooting 17yr old LaquanMcDonald

talksandthought-1547931807146

from @talksandthought – – Former #Chicago police Officer #JasonVanDyke was sentenced to 6 ¾ years in prison Friday for the fatal shooting of 17yr old #LaquanMcDonald, closing one of the most racially fraught and socially significant chapters in recent Chicago history.

After a daylong hearing, Judge Vincent Gaughan sentenced Van Dyke only on the second-degree murder conviction, finding that it was the more serious crime and the 16 aggravated battery convictions should “merge” into it for sentencing purposes.

That decision means Van Dyke will serve only half of the sentence — less than 3 1/2 years in prison – if he earns credit for good behavior. via #ChicagoTribune #police #cops #talksandthoughts #mp
