A former St. Louis Metropolitan Police officer was sentenced to more than four years in prison on Tuesday for his role in assaulting a Black officer who was working undercover as a protester, The Washington Post reports.
Randy Hays pleaded guilty in Nov. 2019 for using unreasonable and excessive force during an altercation with Luther Hall who was working undercover. He received a sentence of 52 months in prison and two years of probation.
Hays was just one of several officers that took part in the beating. Two other officers, Dustin Boone and Christopher Myers, were also involved in the incident.
