Acquitted Tulsa cop receiving back pay

The Associated Press - May 24, 2017 12:05 pm

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa police officer Betty Jo Shelby, acquitted of manslaughter after fatally shooting an unarmed black man, will receive back pay after being on leave since September.
Tulsa spokeswoman Michelle Brooks said Tuesday that Shelby will be getting more than $35,000, minus taxes and other deductions. Shelby’s attorney says the payment is being processed.
Shelby had been on unpaid leave since Sept. 22, when she was charged in the shooting of Terence Crutcher six days earlier.
Jurors acquitted Shelby last week in Crutcher’s death.
