TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A federal appeals court has upheld the conviction of a former Tulsa police officer who was found guilty of perjury and civil rights violations in a corruption scandal that shook the Tulsa Police Department.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals handed down the decision Thursday in the case of Jeff Henderson, who was convicted on eight counts and sentenced to three-and-half years in prison. He was acquitted on 45 other charges.

Henderson was among 11 officers charged or named as unindicted co-conspirators in an investigation that led to more than 40 defendants having convictions overturned or being released from prison.

Among the accusations against Henderson was that he and other officers entered a home without a warrant in September 2007 in what was determined to be an illegal search.
