Judge sentences former METRO police officer to 30 days in jail for assaulting homeless man

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.
