TULSA, Okla. - Attorneys for an imprisoned former Tulsa police officer are set to appear before a federal appeals court to argue why his 2011 conviction should be overturned.
Former-Cpl. Harold Wells, a 35-year-police veteran, is appealing his conviction to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.
Wells is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence for his role in the police corruption scandal that rocked Tulsa.
The disgraced former officer was 1 of 5 officers charged in the scandal. Wells and two other officers were convicted.
Two more officers were acquitted but were fired by TPD. An ATF agent involved in the case pleaded guilty.
Wells' attorney has described his client as a model officer who got caught up through no fault of his own with other convicted Tulsa officers as the government probe went on.
