Parole hearing set for man who killed 2 officers
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee man serving 33 years in prison for causing a crash that killed two Clarksville police officers is scheduled for a parole hearing next month.
The Leaf-Chronicle reported (http://leafne.ws/1oN2vyI ) that the board will consider the case of Sharfyne L. White on Oct. 1.
White was sentenced in December 2004 after pleading guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide and four counts of aggravated robbery.
The charges came from a June 7, 2002, incident in which White, a serial robber, robbed a St. Bethlehem motel before being pursued by 42-year-old David Scott and 23-year-old Yamil Baez-Santiago.
During the pursuit, the police car crashed on 101st Airborne Division Parkway, and both officers were killed.
