The Star-Ledger of Newark reports former Irvington Police Officer Herne Lacoste was sentenced Friday in state Superior Court in Somerville.

Prosecutors say the 41-year-old Lacoste was off-duty in 2011 when he watched his 19-year-old girlfriend, Shanikah Daniels of East Orange, and Markessa Coleman, assault a teenage girl after robbing her.  Lacoste was found guilty of several charges, including kidnapping, aggravated assault and official misconduct.

Daniels was sentenced to seven years in prison on Friday in a separate hearing.

Coleman accepted a plea deal in exchange for her testimony against LaCoste and Daniels.
