ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany man who police said fired an assault rifle at an Albany Police officer was acquitted of that charge and others Wednesday in Dougherty Co. Superior Court.
He was found guilty of two charges; conspiracy, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
After a seven day trial, Rolando Frazier was acquitted on numerous charges, including obstruction of an officer, damage to government property, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
Prosecutors said in the trial that Frazier fired shots from an AK-47 at officer Dillard Glover in August 2011, which missed Glover, but the jury ruled in Frazier's favor.
Frazier was sentenced to 15 years in prison, minus time already served, which equals 12 years.
