Ex-Sheriff To Be Sentenced

Posted: Updated:

A former West Virginia sheriff who admitted to violating the rights of a bank robbery suspect after a 2010 car chase is being sentenced Monday in Wheeling.

Ex-Jefferson County Sheriff Robert Shirley pleaded guilty in January to violating the civil rights of Mark Daniel Haines when he beat him after a high-speed chase.

Haines is also expected to testify during Shirley's hearing. Shirley faces up to 10 years in prison and a find of $250,000.
