Mehserle Sentenced to 2 years, some time served

by

LOS ANGELES, California – BART police officer Johannes Mehserle murdered the unarmed Oscar Grant on the platform of Fruitvale station in Oakland on New Year’s day, 2009. This past July, Mehserle was charged with involuntary manslaughter, and today Judge Perry sentenced Mehserle to the minimum two year prison sentence, with time served.

[Edit]: It’s unclear what amount of time total he is expected to spend in prison. Some reports suggest time served may include 292 days (double the time he’s already spent in jail), or that he may be released in 72 days.

[Edit]: According to SFExaminer, Mehserle has 293 days applied to his sentence.

    All of the reports I heard was that Mehserle will serve 2 years less time served only – not double.
