A Butte County Jury convicted former Paradise Police Officer Patrick Feaster of involuntary manslaughter Tuesday, in connection with the shooting of a motorist a year ago.
The victim, 26-year-old Andrew Thomas, was paralyzed after Feaster shot him in the neck. He died three weeks later.
The jury deliberated for less than 24 hours.
Feaster fired the round as Thomas was trying to climb out of his overturned vehicle. Thomas’s estranged wife, Darien Ehorn, died at the scene.
