Andrew Spengler, 26, was cleared Friday of the single charge he faced, party to the crime of substantial battery, in the beating of Frank Jude Jr. Two other officers, Jon Bartlett, 34, and Daniel Masarik, 26, were acquitted as well. The jury reached no verdict on a substantial battery charge against Bartlett.
One of three former police officers acquitted of beating a man will now look at getting his job back, his attorney said.
Attorney Michael Hart said he will represent Spengler in his appeal before the Fire and Police Commission.
