Chad Holley avoids jail time after violating probation

HOUSTON - A man who was videotaped being beaten by Houston Police when he was a teenager is avoiding jail time after violating terms of his probation.

On Friday, a judge decided not to send Chad Holley to prison, but instead tacked on another year of probation for a 2012 burglary charge.

In March, a grand jury declined to indict Holley for capital murder in a 2016 case.

Holley was 15 when he made national headlines in 2010 after a video was released showing four former HPD officers kicking and stomping him.
