Fired Milwaukee police officer to be sentenced

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A fired Milwaukee police officer is due to be sentenced after he was convicted of slamming a suspect's head against a wall during an arrest.

A jury found 49-year-old Rodney R. Lloyd guilty of misconduct in public office.  Lloyd was acquitted of a separate charge of abusing a prisoner.

He's scheduled to be sentenced Friday morning.  He faces a maximum penalty of 18 months in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Lloyd had arrested a man on a domestic-violence complaint last year and brought him to a police station.  The criminal complaint says the man was taken into the booking room, where Lloyd slammed his head into a concrete wall.

He was fired after the incident and he's appealing that decision.  Lloyd's defense attorney declined to comment before the hearing.
