Ex-NOPD Officers Sentenced In Glover Case
By Eileen Fleming
New Orleans, La. – The officer who shot Henry Glover was sentenced to 25 years in prison. His colleague who set Glover's body on fire received 17 years. The case is the first of several recent civil rights investigations involving police to be tried in federal court. Glover was shot in the back and taken by a passerby to a makeshift police compound set up in the chaotic days following the 2005 hurricane. Glover was then driven off by police in the civilian's car, which was set on fire with his body inside. A third officer was convicted of filing a false report, and is awaiting sentencing.
