CULPEPER, Va. (AP) - Jurors recommended a sentence of three years in prison Friday for a former Culpeper police officer who fatally shot an unarmed woman one year ago. The jury recommended the low end of sentencing guidelines for Daniel Harmon-Wright, who was convicted Tuesday of manslaughter in the Feb. 9, 2012, death of Patricia Ann Cook. He could have received up to 25 years, according to media reports.
Harmon-Wright, an Iraq War veteran, had been on the force for five years.

Although I see 3 years as not much more than a slap on the wrist in this case it isn't going to take more than 5 min. in the right situation for him to never see freedom again. I do not condone this type of jail house activity but it would be naive of me to pretend that it is not a very real possibility.

Culpepper Virginia...His daddy was probably the judge and half of his cousins were probably on the jury.
If his arm was stuck in the window all he needed to do was shoot the window, the glass breaks and his arm is free, no need to shoot 7 times, I think he is lying.
