Convicted cop will remain free until sentencing

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Daniel Snyder will remain free on bond until his sentencing June 20. The Pascagoula Police officer wore chains and a striped prison jumpsuit as he stood before Judge Dale Harkey Friday, a stark contrast to the business suit he's worn to court each day this week while on trial.

Snyder was convicted Thursday of felony leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in the death of 16-year-old Kaytlynn Brann.

Defense attorney Keith Miller requested to defer sentencing and that his client be able to remain out of on bond until next month. Miller wants a pre-sentence investigation report conducted, which will detail the background and character of Snyder. The judge agreed.

"It gives the defense lawyer time to get the information he needs," said Jackson County District Attorney Tony Lawrence.

DA Lawrence points out there are strict conditions attached to this agreement that Snyder will have to abide by, which include surrendering his passport and staying inside the state of Mississippi.

"He will have to wear a GPS device and an alcohol monitoring device, where he will not be able to drink any alcohol the entire time he is out on bond. He has a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., and he will have to remain at his house and not be allowed to drive during those hours," said Lawrence.

Brann's family and friends were also in court as the bond conditions were read. Lawrence said they're just ready for closure in their loved ones death.

"I think the family is ready to for this to be resolved, and June 20th is enough time to give the parties enough time they need to get the information, so the court can make the right sentence," said Lawrence.

Snyder could face up to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.

    The Pascagoula Panthers open the 2017 football season on the road. In fact, their first three games are road contests. That scheduling quirk may give field turf crews just enough time to get War Memorial Stadium ready for the September 8 home opener. The wet weather in South Mississippi is placing quite the burden on construction workers as they attempt to complete stadium renovations. The project was suppose to be finished before the beginning of Pascagoula's football season.
