DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN - A jury has convicted Lamont Pride of second-degree murder in the death of NYPD Detective Peter Figoski.

Pride was found guilty of killing the detective during a botched robbery back in December 2011. He was cleared of the top charge that he intentionally killed Figoski.

PBA President Pat Lynch and Figoski's family said they had hoped for an aggravated murder charge that would allow the judge to sentence Pride to life in prison without parole.

The judge says Pride will be sentenced Feb. 28. He faces 25 years to life in prison.
