Philly Officer Who Punched Woman at Parade Given Job Back

Was caught on video, but officer was found not guilty of assault

|

The now former Philadelphia Police lieutenant who was captured on a YouTube video striking a woman during the city's Puerto Rican Day Parade has been given his job back and will receive all back pay.

The infamous tape—which was viewed over and over again across multiple media outlets—led to Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams to charge Jonathan Josey with a simple assault charge.

Josey was found not guilty, yet he still out of a job.

Josey told FOX 29 in a one-on-one interview that he desperately wanted to get the job he loves back.
