Atlanta Police Officer Gets Jail Time

ATLANTA (AP) _ A Fulton County Superior Court judge has sentenced an Atlanta police officer to 4 and a half years in prison for lying to investigators after a drug raid ended in the death of a 92-year-old woman.

Judge Michael Johnson also sentenced Arthur Tesler today to six months of probation and ordered him to serve 450 hours of community
service as a result of the death of Kathryn Johnston when narcotics
officers burst into her northwest Atlanta home on Nov. 21, 2006 using a special "no-knock'' warrant to search for drugs.

The 42-year-old Tesler was convicted Tuesday of making false statements.
