CHICAGO (CBS) — Four police officers – three from Chicago, and one from Glenview – have been charged with felony perjury, for allegedly lying under oath in a drug case last year.
Dashcam video from a Glenview police squad car led to the charges against Chicago Police Sgt. James Padar, Chicago Police Officers William Pruente and Vince Morgan, and Glenview Police Officer James Horn.
The four officers testified against 23-year-old Joseph Sperling about a pound of marijuana being found in plain view in his car during a traffic stop in Glenview in June 2013. However, video shown during a court hearing last year proved the findings and the arrest did not take place the way the officers claimed.
