UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) -- A judge has sentenced a Prince George's County police officer to 30 days of home detention for beating a University of Maryland student during a rowdy celebration following a Terrapin basketball victory over Duke.
The judge sentenced Cpl. James Harrison on Friday to a year in jail on the assault conviction, then suspended all but 30 days and ordered Harrison to serve those through home detention.
Harrison was one of two officers charged with assaulting John McKenna. The 2010 incident was captured on video by another student. The other officer was acquitted in October.
Harrison's lawyer says he'll file a motion asking the judge to expunge Harrison's conviction from his record.
