Orleans - Five former New Orleans police officers sentenced today to prison for their part in deadly shooting on the Danziger Bridge after Hurricane Katrina. The sentences range from six to 65 years. A federal jury convicted the six officers in August 2011 of civil rights violations. Police shot six people, killing two, less than a week after Katrina made landfall in 2005.
