Ex-cop gets jail for assaulting Buffalo officer
Sean Kelley loses bid to start treatment; Officer Autumn Harrison suffered ligament damage
By Matt Gryta
BUFFALO - Former West Seneca Police Officer Sean P. Kelley will spend up to four months more behind bars before he begins inpatient treatment for anger and drinking problems under a sentence imposed Wednesday by State Supreme Court Justice Penny M. Wolfgang.
The judge rejected requests by Kelley's attorneys, Rodney O. Personius and Brian M. Melber, to free Kelley, 31, from jail so he could enter a Bradford, Pa., facility today for three weeks of treatment.
