CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A man who claimed to be a police officer and took dozens of people to jail in Charlotte will spend at least two and a half years in prison.
Aaron Echols pleaded guilty Friday afternoon to charges of impersonating an officer, felonious restraint and perjury.
He was sentenced to two and a half years in prison and three years probation.
Eyewitness News has been following Echols' story since police arrested him in March for impersonating an officer.
Echols ran his own private police agency, and many of the people he had arrested spent months trying to get their records cleared up.
