Judge rules ex-cop Michael Slager committed murder in Walter Scott death

Judge rules ex-cop Michael Slager committed murder in Walter Scott death

The video, shot by an immigrant from the Dominican Republic who was passing by the vacant lot where the shooting took place, showed Slager coolly taking aim and firing eight shots at Scott, 50, as he fled.

A former SC cop has been sentenced to 19 to 24 years in prison for shooting dead an unarmed black motorist. He was shot in the back five times as he ran away. He said he misses watching football games with his dad. A bystander's cellphone video of the fatal chase went viral, and Slager was charged with murder in a case that became a rallying point for the Black Lives Matter movement. At issue was Slager's state of mind and the facts of the physical altercation that preceded the shooting-including whether Scott had handled Slager's Taser and what was said between the men.

Scott family lawyer Justin Bamberg said: 'I think everybody's just ready to close this chapter of life and start the next chapter. "It is time to call the shooting of Walter Scott what it was: It was a murder". "I would like you to sentence the defendant to the strongest sentence the laws allows because he murdered my one and only father". The former North Charleston officer faces a possible life sentence, although federal officials have recommended far less.

Fishman also said Slager had changed his story several times as to what he remembered about the shooting, including flawed state trial testimony about Scott charging him with his own stun gun.

Finally , the company said it has sold more than 12.2 million copies of the 150 games releases for the PSVR through December 3rd. On the software front, over 614.8 million physical and digital PlayStation 4 titles have been sold around the world.

Slager faced murder charges in state court, but a jury in that case deadlocked previous year, and the state charges were dropped as part of his federal plea deal.

On April 4, 2015, Slager stopped the vehicle Scott was driving in North Charleston for a broken rear brake light.

The mother of a slain black motorist says she forgives the white former SC police officer who killed her son. Prosecutors had argued that Slager committed second-degree murder, while the defense claimed his offense was, at most, voluntary manslaughter.

Slager's initial trial in state court ended in a mistrial due to a hung jury. During her statement, she locked eyes with Slager, who began crying.

During his exam, Slager told the doctor he remembered having a "scuffle" with Scott but otherwise didn't recall specific details from any fight the men had.

Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said she had interacted with federal prosecutors but couldn't recall specific contacts and hadn't planned prosecutorial decisions with them.

On Monday, Savage repeated his criticism that the state and federal governments teamed up unfairly on his client.

Slager, 36, pleaded guilty in federal court in May to violating Scott's civil rights by shooting Scott without justification.
