Police Chief's Sentence Upheld

As reported by Amanda Milkovits in the July 7, 2015 edition of the Providence Journal, Judge Procaccini previously sentenced former North Providence Police Chief Whiting to six (6) months imprisonment for felony larceny and criminal solicitation. The Judge recently heard arguments to reduce the sentence due to the Chief’s martial and medical problems at the time of the incident.

The Judge upheld his previously imposed sentence stating that Whiting needed to be made “an example of” due to his position as Police Chief. Whiting is currently serving his six (6) month sentence at the ACI. Following his release from prison, he will be on a suspended sentence with probation for the next four and half (4 ½) years. In addition, he will have to undergo anger management and mental health counseling.
