A Baltimore police officer who was caught on surveillance video beating a man by repeatedly punching him in the face pleaded guilty to second-degree assault today, receiving a five year prison sentence.

However, the judge suspended all but six months of the sentence.

Charges against Truss were dismissed as the video turned into a national story.
