Officer sentenced for firing into wrong house
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida police officer who fired into a house after being sent to a wrong address will not have to serve any jail time.
Local media reports that Ocoee officer Carlos Anglero was sentenced Thursday to three years of probation and 100 hours of community service on his January conviction of shooting into a building.
A dispatcher sent officers to the wrong address at 1 a.m. on Feb. 6, 2016, for a domestic disturbance. They pounded on the door but the homeowner says they didn’t announce themselves as police. Another officer saw him inside with a gun and opened fire. Anglero then fired. No one was hit.
Anglero blamed the dispatcher and said he had no regrets.
