Former Streamwood police Officer James Mandarino will be on probation for the next 30 months, for beating an unarmed, kneeling man while his dashboard video camera was rolling.
Sentencing was suddenly postponed Monday morning for a former Streamwood police officer, who was convicted of beating an unarmed, kneeling man while his dashboard video camera was rolling.
A Cook County judge has found a former Streamwood police officer guilty of aggravated battery and official misconduct for repeatedly hitting an unarmed man with his baton last year.
The misconduct trial of a former suburban police officer has wrapped up and is now in the hands of the judge.
James Mandarino allegedly used excessive force when he pulled over motorist Ronald Bell last year.
The trial begins today for a Streamwood police officer accused of brutality.
