Officer convicted of shooting Del City teen in back to be sentenced or get new trial today
DEL CITY, Okla. – A former Del City officer convicted of shooting and killing an unarmed teenager will face his sentencing today.
However, his defense filed a motion for a re-trial after a juror refused to vote on the case back in November.
Randy Harrison is being held at the Oklahoma County Jail.
This afternoon a judge will approve the motion for a new trial or rule on Harrison’s sentencing.
A jury found 48-year-old Randy Harrison guilty of first-degree manslaughter back in November.
They recommended he spend four years in prison for the death of Dane Scott, Jr.
Harrison’s defense attorneys allege there was jury misconduct during deliberations on his first-degree manslaughter conviction.
The court hearing starts at 1:30 p.m.
We will be following this case closely and will give updates as they come.
