Former HPD sergeant sentenced on drug charges

Posted on April 19th, 2012 No Comments

A 47 year-old former Houston police officer was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison last week after being convicted of taking bribe money to traffic cocaine through Houston while in uniform. He was also charged with conspiracy to possess more than 5 kilograms of cocaine for distribution.

The officer had been a 19-year veteran of the force with only one year left before retirement when he was arrested last March. The FBI, Texas Rangers, and Houston police were in on the undercover operation that busted the sergeant.

A plea deal would have significantly lowered his sentencing to five or six years, but the former officer refused. He received the minimum sentencing, with the max being 19 years and seven months in prison.
