A former Culpeper police officer who fatally shot an unarmed woman has been sentenced to 36 months.
33 year-old Daniel Harmon-Wright was in court on Thursday, after being convicted of manslaughter and unlawful shooting charges back in January.
Harmon-Wright was responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle in a church parking lot, when he shot 54 year-old Patricia Ann Cook, in February 2012.
He claimed he shot Cook after she attempted to drive away in her vehicle with his arm caught in the window.
A $5,000,000 wrongful death lawsuit filed against Harmon-Wright by Cook's family is still pending.
