SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A former north Louisiana police officer has been sentenced to more than six years in prison.
The U.S. Justice Department said Wednesday that a federal judge in Shreveport sentenced 44-year-old Jared Preston Desadier to 78 months detention.
Desadier pleaded guilty
Desadier pleaded guilty in July. He admitted to kicking a suspect in the face as the man was lying on the ground with his hands behind his back.
The incident happened in April 2020, when Desadier was a Monroe police officer.
