Former BART officer to remain in jail

Posted on December 6, 2010

LOS ANGELES — Former Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) police officer Johannes Mehserle, who was sentenced to two years in prison for shooting a man to death on an Oakland train platform in 2009, lost a bid to remain free on bail pending his appeal, according to Reuters.

Mehserle was convicted for involuntary manslaughter, instead of murder, in the racially-charged case, which triggered a wave of looting and destruction in Oakland in July. His two-year sentence touched off more angry protests in November. For the full story, click here.
