A former police officer from California faces up to 40 years in prison after a manslaughter conviction in Natchitoches Parish.

42-year-old Shawn Shelton was visiting friends in Louisiana when he met 19-year-old Justin James in 2005.

James was later found drugged and unconsious. His death was ruled a homicide, and Shelton was found responsible.
