Police Man Killed Hit and Run – Sentenced Today
Death By Dangerous Driving – Manslaughter
The well published tragic and untimely death of a police office in Liverpool has been concluded by the sentencing of the person convicted for the killing of the officer.
The man convicted of the officer’s death has been sentenced and found guilty of manslaughter of a policeman by running him over in a stolen truck during a chase. He was charged with a lesser charge of manslaughter and not murder.
The death by dangerous driving was when he was in a high-speed pursuit when the officer was crouched down on the kerb when he was deploying the anti-speeding device called a “stinger” but the car mounted the pavement and stuck and killed the police officer.
The convicted man is said to be 19 years old and the police officer just 24 years old leaving a widow and 2 young children.
The police officer’s widow, Jen Phillips, cried as she read out her victim impact statement and said:
According to the BBC website the convicted assailant also failed to stop in a previous incident, see here: “failed to stop in a previous car crash”
