Henry Long, 19, the driver, and his passengers Jessie Cole and Albert Bowers, both 18, were found guilty of manslaughter, but were cleared of murder earlier this month.
At the Old Bailey today Long was sentenced to 16 years in jail. Cole and Bowers were both sentenced to 13 years in jail.
In August last year, the trio were stealing a quad bike when approached by 28-year-old officer Andrew Harper, who chased the group’s car.
After getting caught in a tow rope, he was dragged for 1.4 miles down a country lane. His fatally injured body became detached from the vehicle and was left in the road.
