MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — Former Miami police officer Schonton Harris, who pleaded guilty with conspiring with other officers to possess cocaine, has been sentenced to 15 ½ years in prison.

Investigators say Harris provided police protection for what she believed were large shipments of cocaine on three occasions last September and October. She received a cash payment of $17,000. The deliveries were arranged by undercover FBI agents.
