This Week's Corrupt Cops Stories

What, no crooked jail guards? How about a federal judge? We've got one this week, as well as a couple of dirty narcs, and a sticky-fingered police captain. Let's get to it:

In Atlanta, a federal judge pleaded guilty Friday to charges he illegally possessed cocaine, marijuana, and Roxycodone. Senior US District Judge Jack Camp also admitted he gave a government-issued laptop to a stripper with whom he allegedly used the drugs. Camp went down after the stripper, who had a previous drug conviction, started snitching to the feds, and he was busted when he and the stripper bought a quantity of drugs from an undercover FBI agent. Camp has now resigned from the federal bench and is looking at up to four years in prison when he is sentenced March 4.

In Las Vegas, a former Chicago police officer was arrested Friday on federal drug and conspiracy charges. Retired Chicago cop Glenn Lewellen, 54, was indicted by a federal grand jury for using his position as a police officer to provide information about ongoing federal investigations to members of a drug dealing organization between 1999 and 2002. He is charged with racketeering conspiracy and conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Among his other exploits, Lewellen is accused of sending an innocent man to prison with perjured testimony, obtaining and distributing wholesale quantities of cocaine, and protecting a drug ring that allegedly committed at least two murders and six kidnappings.

In Baton Rouge, Louisiana, a former McComb County narcotics officer was arrested Friday on drug dealing charges. Conner McGee, also a former Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics officer until this summer, is charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute. No further details are available.

In Batavia, Ohio, a former Felicity Police Department captain was sentenced Monday for confiscating Oxycontin pills during an investigation and not logging them in as evidence. Delmas Pack, 42, pleaded guilty earlier this month to one count of tampering with evidence. He got two years probation and 200 hours of community service. Prosecutors said they would agree to probation if he promised never to become a police officer again. He did.

Illinois Taxpayers On Hook For Cop’s Alleged Pejured Testimony

It was reported in Las Vegas that a former Chicago police officer Glenn Lewellen was arrested on federal drug and conspiracy charges, (including sending an innocent man to prison with perjured testimony…) If Glen is convicted, imagine the Huge Lawsuit the innocent man sent to prison might file against Chicago and Illinois, the costs incurred by State Taxpayers who have to pay damages because of an alleged corrupt cop’s perjured testimony.
