LOUISVILLE, KY ? A Louisville police officer has been fined $2 after being convicted of official misconduct and harassment for striking a handcuffed suspect multiple times.

A Jefferson District Jury on Friday fined officer David Graham $1 for each of the charges stemming from the March 31, 2012 arrest of 19-year-old John R. Sanders. A videotape of Sanders' arrest shows Graham poking Sanders multiple times in the throat and slapping him.

Defense attorney Steve Schroering told The Courier-Journal his client was disappointed at being convicted, but thankful the jury gave him the "absolute minimum penalty."

Graham, a Fourth Division officer who has been on the police force since 1999, could still face disciplinary action from the police department.

He probably wont. If anything happens to him it'll proabaly just be a day or two off with pay. That's often how we "punish" cops in the us.
