The three teenagers who dragged a British policeman to his death when he got caught on their vehicle have been jailed for a total of 42 years.
Teenage driver Henry Long, who dragged police officer Andrew Harper to his death, has been sentenced to 16 years in prison.
Long, 19, and 18-year-olds teenagers Albert Bowers and Jessie Cole were convicted of manslaughter, but cleared by a jury on July 24 of murdering the 28-year-old newlywed as he responded to an early-morning burglary in Berkshire on August 15 last year.
Long admitted manslaughter, and the jury found the two other defendants guilty of the same charge. The judge, Mr Justice Edis, handed teenagers Cole and Bowers 13-year jail sentences each.
During the sentencing prosecutor read a victim impact statement from PC Harper’s mother Deborah Adlam.
She said: “I am unable to explain the enormity of what I’m feeling and have been struggling with since we were awoken on August 15, 2019, at 4.45am to the worst news imaginable.
