Jury Convicts Tulsa Cop, Clears Another

Jurors convicted Officer Jeff Henderson on eight of the 53 counts against him, and cleared Officer William Yelton on the eight charges he faced.

A Tulsa police officer was convicted Wednesday of perjury and civil rights violations, but federal jurors acquitted him and another officer of witness tampering and other charges stemming from an investigation of claims of widespread corruption within the city's police department.

For the second time this summer, the government could claim only partial victory in a case that resulted from that investigation. Jurors convicted Officer Jeff Henderson on eight of the 53 counts against him, and cleared Officer William Yelton on the eight charges he faced.
