MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Opa-locka cop convicted of falsely imprisoning a youth counselor was sentenced Thursday.
German Bosque was sentenced to 364 days in jail followed by 4 years of probation. Bosque was convicted in June for what prosecutors said was the unjust handcuffing of Korey Davis in August 2011.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Miguel de la O allowed Bosque to be released on bond pending his appeal.
Bosque will not begin serving time until the appellate court upholds the judge’s ruling. His case could still be overturned by the appellate courts.
As reported by CBS4’s news partner the Miami Herald, in August 2011, Bosque reportedly punched Davis after an argument with his baby’s mother.
When Davis went to the police department to complain, Bosque through Davis’ phone across the lobby, handcuffed him and cursed him out, before finally letting him go without an arrest.
