Former State Trooper Sentenced

Former state trooper Sean Groubert was sentenced this morning to 12 years in prison, suspended to 5 years with credit for the 17 months served.  In addition he will be on probation for 3 years after his release from prison.

Groubert earlier pled guilty to a charge of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature in a high-profile shooting of Levar Jones in a convenience store parking lot in 2014.

Groubert admitted in court that he “screwed-up” and publicly apologized to Jones who was in the court room for the sentencing.

Groubert could have receive as many as 20 years in prison.
