The full City Council Wednesday will vote on a nearly three-quarter of a million dollar settlement in a case of rogue cops shaking down drug dealers.
The alleged ringleader of a group of corrupt Chicago police officers was sentenced to 12 years in prison for ordering a hit on another officer, because he believed the officer was cooperating with a federal investigation of their illegal activities.
A former Chicago cop pleaded guilty Tuesday to taking part in robberies in which he and other officers stole hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash from suspected drug dealers and innocent civilians.
One current and three former Chicago police cops will plead guilty to federal civil rights violations in a case that involves shaking down suspected drug dealers and others while they were with the now-disbanded Special Operations Section.
