Cop gets three years plus for bribe - Chicago
Ten officers have been arrested for corruption cases.
A federal judge has sentenced a former Chicago police officer to three-and-a-half years in prison for accepting several hundred dollars in bribes.
In this case, Juan Prado, a 12-year veteran of the police force, along with nine other arrested officers, were busted for accepting money from tow truck operators in return for their often higher-priced business.
In at least one case, an accident was staged and a police report was falsified to bill a better insurance policy for more money.
In Prado's case, he was charged with accepting hundreds of dollars for steering business to an undercover FBI agent posing as a tow truck driver.
Charges are pending against the other officers.
