Ex-cop sentenced for extorting tow truck drivers
(MCT) — A former Chicago police officer was sentenced Thursday to 31/2 years in federal prison for extorting bribes to steer business to tow truck drivers at crash scenes.
Juan Prado, a 12-year veteran of the department, pleaded guilty in July to pocketing $3,790 in payoffs in 2006 and 2007 from a tow truck operator who was secretly working undercover for the FBI. Prosecutors alleged that Prado had taken in more than $16,000 in all by directing business to bribe-paying tow truck drivers.
