Former cops appeal conviction
Facebook Twitter Email

Two former Canadian cops who admitted abandoning a Native man in the freezing cold were sentenced to less than one year for their crime, posted bail, got out of jail and immediately appealed their case -- all on Friday.

Ken Munson and Dan Hatchen were sentenced to eight months after a judge in Saskatchewan denied their request to be punished via a traditional Native setencing circle. The victim, Darrell Night, didn't want to participate.

The men say the judge unfairly sentenced them.
