A 28-year-old man was sentenced on Thursday to 45 years to life in prison for the 2011 killing of a veteran police officer during a botched predawn robbery in Brooklyn. It was the maximum allowable sentence.
The defendant, Lamont Pride, shot NYPD Officer Peter J. Figoski, 47, in the face in the darkened basement of a house in the Cypress Hills neighborhood after officers were summoned to the scene of a burglary in progress.
Pride was given the opportunity to speak before being sentenced in State Supreme Court in Brooklyn. He apologized to his family, but not to Officer Figoski's.
