Officer Jeronimo Yanez To Receive $48,500
NBC reports that the department that employed him at the time of the shooting agreed to pay him $48,500 in a separation agreement announced Monday.The money will be paid in a lump sum, minus applicable deductions and withholdings for state and federal taxes. Additionally, he’ll get up to 600 hours of accrued and unused personal leave pay.
“Since Officer Yanez was not convicted of a crime, as a public employee, he would have appeal and grievance rights if terminated,” said his former department in a statement according to NBC. “A reasonable voluntary separation agreement brings to a close one part of this horrible tragedy. The City concluded this was the most thoughtful way to move forward and help the community-wide healing process proceed.”
While it’s obvious that this killer cop shouldn’t be employed anymore, it must be niiiice to get nearly $50K after committing murder.
