Ex-New Orleans Detective Gets 3 Years For Helping Cover Up Police Shootings in 2005

An ex-New Orleans police detective is headed off to prison.

Jeffrey Lehrmann was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison for his role in covering up two police-involved shootings on the Danziger Bridge in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina that left two civilians dead and four others seriously injured, the Justice Department announced.

He’s the first to be sentenced in the wide sweeping probe into the infamous bridge shootings.

Court documents show that Lehrmann learned from a supervisor that an officer on the bridge “shot an innocent man.”

He admitted that he and his supervisors created a report that included false statements by the officers involved in the shootings; false claims about a gun that had been planted by the investigator; and fabricated statements that came from non-existent witnesses, authorities said.
