L.A. schools police officer convicted of faking his own shooting

A Los Angeles school police officer was convicted Monday of faking his own shooting near El Camino Real High and prompting a 10-hour police dragnet in the western San Fernando Valley.

Jeff Stenroos, 31, was convicted in a non-jury trial of five of the six counts against him.

Van Nuys Superior Court Judge Richard N. Kirschner has not made a decision on the sixth count, filing a false police report.

Stenroos, who had been free on $20,000 bail, was taken into custody immediately after Kirschner announced his verdict.

The judge ordered Stenroos to undergo a psychological exam at a state prison. L.A. NOW
