A San Diego police officer who was acquitted by a jury in case of an off-duty road-rage shooting will return to work Monday, according to Police Chief William Lansdowne, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Police Officer Frank White has been on voluntary unpaid leave from the department since November. The officer will be working in the Operations Support Division until the conclusion of the department's internal investigation, which is expected to take about three weeks, Lansdowne said. White will have limited interaction with the public in that role.
After a three-week trial, a Vista Superior Court jury on Monday found White not guilty of criminal charges resulting from the shooting and wounding of a mother and her young son during a road-rage incident.
During the trial, White's family set up a website "to drum up nationwide support" for the officer and argued he was the victim in the incident.
