A white South Carolina police officer who was charged with a felony for shooting and killing a black driver at the end of a police chase has taken a plea deal and been sentenced to probation.

Multiple media outlets report North Augusta Police officer Justin Craven pleaded guilty to misconduct in office Monday. He was sentenced to three years of probation and 80 hours of community service.

Prosecutors originally wanted to charge Craven with voluntary manslaughter in the killing of 68-year-old Ernest Satterwhite, who had just pulled into his driveway after a 15-minute police chase in February 2014. But a grand jury refused. Craven was later charged with a different felony before taking the plea deal.

The shooting was captured on video. State police say they will release the footage soon.
