This incident stems back to a 2016 training excercise, where Lee Coel a former Punta Gorda Police Officer accused of shooting and killing retired librarian Mary Knowlton during a use-of-force demonstration by the police department, according to Knowlton’s family.

Charlotte County prosecutors accepted a plea deal for Lee Coel with no-jail time involved

This plea agreement does require Coel to be put on probation for 10 years, but will not serve any time locked up according to Knowlton’s son

The family does plan to oppose the decision to the judge in charge of the case in Fort Myers, this afternoon
