Follow Karl Thompson’s sentencing on Twitter

Check here for Twitter updates on the sentencing of Karl F. Thompson Jr., the Spokane police officer who was convicted last year of lying to investigators and using excessive force in the death of Otto Zehm during a 2006 police confrontation at a Spokane convenience store. Sentencing was postponed nearly a year as defense lawyers unsuccessfully argued for a new trial.

Karl Thompson Jr. arrives at the Thomas S. Foley U.S. Courthouse for his sentencing in the Otto Zehm case, Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, in Spokane, Wash.
