HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Two former Houston police officers reached plea deals in the 2010 beating of a burglary suspect which was captured on surveillance video and uploaded to a video sharing site.

Former officers Raad Hassan and Phil Bryan appeared in court Wednesday morning, pleading no contest to official oppression charges. The two men were given two years’ deferred adjudication, another form of probation. Hassan was fined $750 and Bryan $500, with neither of the former officers will be serving any jail time for their role in the beating of Chad Holley.

In March of 2010, Hassan and Bryan were two of the six HPD officers seen on video, beating burglary suspect Holley.

Holley, who has made his fair share of headlines recently for run-ins with the law, was seen getting beaten by the officers on a grass area in Houston. That video went viral and caused nationwide outrage.

Last year, former HPD officer Andrew Blomberg, another of the six officers facing official oppression charges, was acquitted by a jury.
