An Officer Who Struck and Killed a Child While Driving a Police Vehicle Will Not Serve in Jail

Andria Heese, the Columbia Police Department officer who hit and killed a child with her police SUV in 2019, will not serve jail time and has been sentenced to supervised probation. 

During a sentencing at the Boone County Courthouse Thursday morning, the judge ruled that Heese will serve two years of supervised probation under Adult Court Services.

The sentencing comes after she pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for careless driving last month. Heese was originally charged with involuntary manslaughter. She pleaded not guilty to the charge in July 2020.
