Ex-Oklahoma reserve deputy’s supervision moved to Florida

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The post-prison supervision for a former reserve deputy in Oklahoma convicted of manslaughter has been transferred to Florida.
The Tulsa World reports that 76-year-old Robert Bates’ supervisory office changed last week, which will allow the former volunteer deputy to leave the state if he chooses.
A jury convicted Bates of second-degree manslaughter in the 2015 killing of Eric Harris, who was unarmed. Bates has said he mistook his handgun for a stun gun. Bates was released from prison last month after serving less than half of his four-year sentence.
Oklahoma Department of Corrections spokesman Matt Elliott says Bates is eligible to leave the state, noting he will remain under post-incarceration supervision until July.
