HONOLULU (AP) - A 22-year-old Maili man has been sentenced to one year in jail in the traffic death of a Honolulu police officer.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says James Dorsey was sentenced Wednesday by a state judge.
Dorsey was accused in the fatal running over of officer Eric Fontes in September 2011 at a traffic stop near Ko Olina.
The sentence imposed is the maximum jail term for third-degree negligent homicide.
Dorsey was convicted by a jury in October of misdemeanor neglect homicide for causing the death.
He also was convicted of felony negligent injury for injuring officer Herman "Sam" Scanlan in the same incident. A judge, however throughout that verdict, saying it conflicted with the negligent homicide verdict.
