Cop Sentenced To Prison For Killing Old Lady in Raid

Apparently, an effort at fairness, justice, and responsibility has been made in the trial of a police office, Arthur Tesler. The Atlanta police officer has been sentenced to 4 years and six months in prison, six months of probation, and 450 hours of community service for lying to investigators after a drug raid ended in the death of a 92-year-old woman.

Kathryn Johnston died in a storm of bullets when raiding narcotics officers burst into her northwest Atlanta home on November 21, 2006, using a special no-knock warrant to search for drugs. Perhaps, this will serve as a reason to adjust this policy.

Tesler was convicted Tuesday of making false statements and was the only officer to go to trial.
