By Richard Weizel BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (Reuters) - A former 12-year veteran Connecticut police officer caught on video tasering and kicking a Hispanic suspect in a city park was sentenced on Thursday to three months in prison for violating the suspect's civil rights. U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey Meyer imposed the sentence on former Bridgeport police officer Elson Morales, who pleaded guilty to federal civil rights charges after being among three officers accused of stomping and beating Orlando Lopez-Soto on May 20, 2011 after a high speed car chase through the state's largest city. Despite pleas by Morales, his crying wife, and more than a dozen officers who came to court in a show of support for Morales, 43, defense attorney Michael Fitzpatrick's request to spare his client from serving time in prison was denied.
