MILWAUKEE -- A former Milwaukee police officer -- acquitted in a fatal shooting that sparked two nights of violence in Sherman Park -- was sentenced to just over three years in prison Tuesday for a sex assault case that got him fired from his job.

Back in January, Dominique Heaggan-Brown pleaded guilty to soliciting prostitution and obtaining someone's image without their consent. He pleaded no contest to one count of false imprisonment. Two charges of sexual assault were dropped.

This plea agreement came a month before Heaggan-Brown was scheduled to go to trial.

A jury acquitted Heaggan-Brown in June for killing Sylville Smith in August 2016.

One of the sexual assault charges stemmed from a case that happened one day after Smith's shooting.
