A Greek police officer shot and killed a 15-year-old boy in December of 2008, which sparked nationwide riots.
The officer, Epaminondas Korkoneas, 38, was found guilty Monday of culpable homicide and given life in prison, BBC reported. After the shooting, students across the country led demonstrations and riots against what they called police brutality.
These riots continued for several days afterward and police arrested hundreds, according to CNN. Many local businesses were damaged as well.
