Coleman Jury: No prison time for lying cop

From Charles Kiker: Tom Coleman's sentence is 7 years, probated.

UPDATE: First word from AP.

NUTHER UPDATE: AP's later version of the story clarifies that the jury only recommended probation, but that the judge will make a final decision on Tuesday. The earlier story made Judge Gleason seem inclined to accept that recommendation, though. After a long week, BTW, Grits guest blogger Rev. Alan Bean will get some sleep tonight, and provide his wrap up over the weekend.

SATURDAY MORNING UPDATE: This local TV station had good coverage. The New York Times has a story here.
Here's a story from Knight Ridder. The Amarillo Globe News just posted their coverage, NPR's All Things Considered covered the verdict.
