Jeronimo Yanez no longer a St. Anthony police officer

Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty Friday in Philando Castile's killing.

Jeronimo Yanez will no longer be an officer with the City of St. Anthony.

The city in a statement after the verdict Friday said "the public will be best served" if he doesn't work with the force anymore. They'll offer him a voluntary separation agreement to help him transition to a different job.

He won't return to active duty with St. Anthony police.

The city had initially returned him to work in August, about a month after Philando Castile's shooting death. But they quickly changed course, and returned him to paid administrative leave.

Yanez has been a licensed police officer since 2011. Castile was killed during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights – that city gets police services through St. Anthony.
