Cop to seven years in prison for killing of black teen

A former police officer from Chicago on Friday, has been sentenced to nearly seven years in prison for the killing of a black teenager in 2014.

The typing of the news agencies Reuters and AP.

The now former officer Jason Van Dyke was in the autumn of 2018 found to have killed the 17-year-old laquan's McDonald with 16 shot from his tjenestepistol.

But the jury chose to know the now 40-year-old Van Dyke guilty of the murder of the second degree, as it is called in the UNITED states. It triggers most often a judgment in less than 20 years in prison. This is in contrast to the murder of the first degree, which can give up to life imprisonment.

Friday was the punishment meted out, and it ended 81 months in prison. Jason Van Dyke will serve at least two years before he can apply for parole.

Before the verdict was delivered, read out the Van Dyke a statement in which he called the day of the shooting the worst day of my life'.

- The last thing I wanted to do was to shoot laquan's McDonald's, he said.

the Killing in Chicago and the subsequent trial caused a sensation in the UNITED states and put the focus on the racial tensions in the UNITED states's third largest city.

the Case was also unusual, as it was the first time in over 50 years, to a police officer in Chicago was convicted for actions in the service.

at the same time, it was the first time that a cop from the city was found guilty of the murder of an african american.

When Jason Van Dyke was found guilty last autumn, triggered the spontaneous glædesdemonstrationer in Chicago's streets.
