PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Former Pascagoula police officer Daniel Snyder will spend a year behind bars for his role in the death of an Ocean Springs teenager.

Snyder was sentenced Friday to six years in prison, but five of those will be served under supervised release. Snyder must also pay a $2,000 fine and restitution of burial expenses.

Friday's sentencing was emotionally draining for Kaytlynn Brann's family and friends, as they sat in a Jackson County courtroom and nervously awaited the judge's decision.

The defendant was off duty the night his car hit and killed the 16-year-old as she walked down a Road. Court records indicate the off duty police officer was drinking the night of the accident.

For teenage girl's family, the punishment doesn't fit the crime. Danielle Thomas was in court today and will have reaction to the sentence later today on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
