FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — A jury convicted a former Fulton County deputy sheriff of manslaughter on Wednesday for the shooting death of a pimp in a confrontation nearly five years ago.

Richard M. Jackson, 44, was found guilty of fatally shooting Alan Griffin, 22, after he was confronted by an armed Griffin. The other man sought out Jackson after he was told by one of his prostitutes that Jackson had refused to pay, tried to rape her and shot at her when she fled.
