A Rhode Island cop who was convicted of a felony after he was caught on video kicking a handcuffed woman to the head is still employed as a police officer.
Lincoln police officer Edward Krawetz kicked the woman in the head in 2009 claiming self-defense because apparently he was in fear for his life. He didnâ€™t go to trial until March of this year.
He was convicted and sentenced to ten years in prison but because he is a cop, the judge suspended the sentence, meaning he didn’t serve a day in jail, even though he already had a prior conviction for assaulting a jogger.
