Two Edmonton police officers have been sentenced for their involvement in the so-called ‘sweatbox incident’ five years ago.

The officers drove nine homeless people around in an unventilated paddy wagon for three hours on a hot spring day.

A supervising officer ruled last month that the officers had failed in their duties and embarrassed Edmonton’s police force.

APTN National News reporter Noemi LoPinto has the details.
