Convicted officer gets suspended sentence

WORCESTER, Mass. -- A Lawrence police officer convicted of assault and battery on two suspects he was arresting won't serve jail time after his two one-year prison terms were suspended.
Officer Kyle Wilcox will only be imprisoned if he violates terms of his probation under provisions of the sentence handed down on Wednesday in Worcester District Court. Those terms include anger management classes.
The charges stem from a December 2006 arrest of brothers Moises and Rubenito Fernandez during a tenant dispute. They say they were brought to the station, where Wilcox pushed Rubenito to the ground in the station's vehicle bay and Wilcox hit Moises across the head with a hard object while he was handcuffed.
The 31-year-old Wilcox, a four-year veteran, is on paid administrative leave.
