Crooked Cop Gets 11+ Years
So this Police Officer, Mr. Geovani Nunez, a 13-year veteran of the City of Miami Police Department, thought he was helping some flashy trucking company owner smuggle around things like stolen iPhones and 12 kilograms of cocaine. He used his police car to escort the trucks and was paid a total of $28,000 cash for his services. Silly crooked cop. Turned out the whole thing was an FBI set up, and after being found guilty Nunez was sentenced today to 135 months behind bars, plus five years of supervised release.
Another officer who took part in the scheme is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 8, 2009.
