Swisher Co. Judge Sentences Coleman to 10 Years Probation

Tom Coleman was back in Tulia Tuesday to hear his official sentence.

A Lubbock jury recommended a seven year probated prison sentence for the former undercover officer, but a Swisher County Judge gave him ten years probation.

A Lubbock jury found Coleman guilty of aggravated perjury last week. Coleman was convicted for lying under oath in a 2003 evidentiary hearing. He lied about knowing he was charged with theft prior to August 7, 1998. Coleman was working the undercover drug sting in Tulia during 1998.

His sentence includes $7,500 restitution to Swisher County, drug tests, curfews, no alcohol and not violating the law. Coleman will serve his probation in Ellis County where he is currently living.
