CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A former Richmond police officer found guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the death of an 18-year-old in Chesterfield in 2015 will be allowed to leave the state prior to his sentencing.
A Chesterfield judge granted the motion to lift David Cobb's bond restrictions Friday.
In February, a jury recommended that Cobb spend three months in the death of Paterson Brown Jr.
Brown died after being shot by Cobb at a car wash in October 2015.
While Cobb was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter in February, he was found not guilty in using or displaying a firearm in a threatening way to commit murder.
Cobb's initial trial last year ended in a hung jury.
He will be sentenced later this spring.
