Michael Slager, the former South Carolina police officer who shot and killed Charleston man Walter Scott as he fled unarmed on foot, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison on Thursday (Dec. 8).


Michael Slager, the former Charleston, S.C. police officer that gunned down fleeing Black man Walter Scott, has pleaded guilty to the charges. The 35-year-old Slager admitted guilt for the April 2015 shooting as part of a plea agreement, and the Scott family views the moment as justice.


North Charleston police officer Michael Slager shot and killed 50-year-old Walter Scott last April, which ignited furious protests while adding to the ongoing discussion of authorities targeting people of color. Scott’s family received some justice after city officials put forth a $6.5 million settlement which was accepted.
