A former Dallas police officer who pointed a gun at country music singer Steve Holy during an off-duty night of drinking is going to jail for 45 days.
Randy Anderson, 27, was sentenced Wednesday as part of a deferred adjudication probation. He won't have a conviction if he successfully completes his probation for aggravated assault. Anderson and his attorney declined to comment.
Another former officer was charged aggravated assault but his trial date has not been set.
The confrontation occurred in 2007, after Holy invited the officers to his home after a nearby bar closed. An argument ensued and Anderson pulled the gun. Anderson testified at trial that he only pulled his gun after Holy acted aggressively.
What do you think "deferred adjudication probation" means? Is that like going to jail for 45 days, after which completing a period of supervision successfully, followed by having your criminal record expunged and then being free to own guns?
He won't have a conviction if he successfully completes his probation for aggravated assault. Anderson and his attorney declined to comment.
I'll bet they refused to comment. They were probably too busy going off to the bar to celebrate. Is there no end to the special treatment cops get even when they lose their jobs over the criminal act? Ex-officer Randy Anderson has proven himself unfit to own a gun, don't you think?
