North Miami Police Gives Officer Jonathan Aledda Notice Of Intent To Terminate Following Guilty Verdict In Unarmed Caretaker Shooting

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The North Miami Police Department says it has provided Officer Jonathan Aledda with a notice of intent to terminate.

He will be placed on administrative leave without pay until a final decision is made.

On Monday, it took a Miami jury just a few hours to find Aledda guilty of a lesser charge of culpable negligence in the shooting of an unarmed caretaker.

The jury also returned a verdict of not guilty on count one and count two of attempted manslaughter, which were felony charges.

Aledda faces up to a year in prison for the misdemeanor.

He and his attorneys will be back in court for the sentencing phase of the trial.
