Syracuse Cop Killer Freed From Prison

Syracuse, N.Y. - The man who shot and killed a Syracuse Police Offiicer in broad daylight back in 1990....has been released from prison.

Robert “Bam Bam” Lawrence was released on parole from the Auburn prison. He served 29-and-a-half years of a 30-to-life sentence.

Officer Wallie Howard was working an undercover detail as a drug dealer , when he was shot and killed Oct 30th.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that federal judges had to consider a juvenile defendant’s age as a mitigating factor before sentencing them to life in prison. Lawrence was 16 at the time. That made it possible for Lawrence to get out of state prison on parole.
