Followup LA: Pastor and Former Cop gets Probation for Shooting Fleeing Thief
Pastor and former New Orleans police officer Willie Littleton received a five-year suspended sentence and five years of probation Thursday (April 14) for shooting a suspected copper thief in the head outside his Algiers church in 2014.
Littleton, 64, averted a trial for attempted manslaughter last November, when he agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of aggravated second-degree battery. As part of that plea deal, District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro's office told Criminal District Court Judge Robin Pittman that it would not oppose a sentence of probation.
