Retired officer sentenced Tuesday

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A retired Henrico County police officer, found guilty of driving under the influence and injuring a construction worker, will be sentenced in Henrico court Tuesday afternoon.

John Tucker was convicted earlier this year after colliding with a construction worker near the Nuckols Road exit of Interstate 295, back in July of 2010.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that, during the trial, it was revealed Tucker had a blood alcohol level of .24 at the time of the crash — three times the legal limit.

Tucker's sentencing is at 2 p.m.
