Thomas Latanowich was led out of Barnstable Superior Court in handcuffs and shackles on Friday to serve life in prison after a jury found him guilty of second degree murder and six other charges in the 2018 shooting death of Yarmouth Police Sergeant Sean Gannon.
He will be eligible for parole after 25 years.
As he was placed into a waiting sheriff’s van, the convicted murderer faced dozens of police officers and first responders on hand for the sentencing.
At a press conference outside the courthouse, Cape and islands DA Michael O’Keefe said he accepted the murder two verdict.
In his own press conference, Latanowich’s Defense Attorney Joseph Krowski said they will appeal.
