HOUSTON (FOX 26) - A former METRO Rail police officer is sentenced for beating a homeless man.
Video shows Jairus Warren hitting the man 15 times with his baton at a METRO Rail Station back in 2016.
On Wednesday, a jury convicted him of assault with bodily injury.
Thursday, a judge sentenced Warren to 30 days in jail and two years of probation.
He must wear a leg monitor, take some classes, and can't have guns or alcohol.
Prosecutors say they're comfortable with the judge's decision, but this is a sad situation all around.
The judge granted an appeal bond, meaning Warren's sentence is frozen until the judge decides whether or not to grant the defense motion for a new trial.
