A jury convicted Glenn Doneghy of manslaughter and assault after he ran over Officer Bryan Durman in 2010.
Doneghy received a 20-year sentence.
But he will be eligible for parole in April.
A hearing is set for February 24th.
Meanwhile, Fayette County Commonwealth’s Attorney Ray Larson said on facebook that Durman’s wife Brandy is gathering names on a petition.
It would show public support for keeping Doneghy in prison.
