The judge who convicted former Kansas City, Missouri police detective Eric DeValkenaere in the killing of Cameron Lamb has taken the unusual step of agreeing to let him stay out of prison on bond after his appeal — even though he hasn’t yet appealed.

Jackson County Circuit Judge Dale Youngs on Tuesday ruled that DeValkenaere can remain free after his scheduled sentencing on March 4, when DeValkenaere plans to appeal.

After a four-day bench trial, Youngs in November found DeValkenaere guilty of involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action. DeValkenaere has been free on bond since then.

DeValkenaere, who is white, shot Lamb, a 26-year-old Black man, as Lamb was backing his red pickup truck into his basement garage.

DeValkenaere claimed he saw Lamb reaching for a gun. Read more.
