Ex-Cop Gets 25 Years In Post-Katrina Shooting
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday sentenced a former New Orleans police officer to 25 years in prison for his role in the shooting death of a man and the burning of his body after Hurricane Katrina.
David Warren was convicted in December of shooting 31-year-old Henry Glover without justification outside a strip mall less than a week after the storm, which struck Aug. 29, 2005.
The judge sentenced former officer Gregory McRae to 17 years. He burned Glover's body in a car near a police station.
Both men faced mandatory minimum prison sentences of 10 years.
