Federal Judge Sentences Tulsa Officers, ATF Agent
December 06, 2011
A federal judge on Tuesday told a former Tulsa police officer that he'd "dishonored the badge" before sentencing him to 10 years in prison for his role in a police corruption scandal that led to dozens of convictions being overturned, reports Fox News.
Cpl. Harold R. Wells was the third of four officers sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma.
Jeff Henderson was sentenced to 42 months behind bars, minus time served. John K. Gray drew a sentence of four months in prison, followed by four years of supervised probation. Brandon McFadden, a former Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agent, was sentenced to serve 21 months in prison. Gray and McFadden cooperated with prosecutors and received lighter sentences.

There are some good officers out there trying to uphold the law as they are sworned to. But then you do have some bad apples in the barrell. If you break the law there is punishment for you as a criminal and not as a police officer. So Officers please think before you break the law that you have taken an oath to uphold.
