D.C. police officer is going on probation after being sentenced Thursday to the 14 months behind bars he already served for shooting at a car full of transgender prostitutes who refused to pick him up. Kenneth Furr, 48, was found guilty in October of several charges, including assault with intent to kill while armed. D.C. Superior Court Judge Russell Canan sentenced Furr to five years in prison and 30 days for solicitation of prostitution, and suspended all but 14 months of that time on the condition that Furr successfully complete three years of supervised probation. The judge credited the time that Furr had already spent in custody toward his sentence; as a result, Furr remains free and is now on probation.
