Description

This report on the felony conviction of a former police officer for organized fraud is the culmination of a 1997 investigation into bid-rigging at a Central Florida police department. Reporters found a police chief allowed his most-trusted employee to resign quietly, rather than face an internal investigation, even though there was evidence of ethical lapses. He was steering tens of thousands of dollars in computer puchases to a company run out of his home, ostensibly by his wife.
