Cop Stole Jewelry From Home He Was Dispatched To Check On (Chicago Tribune)
Monday May 20th, 2013
A former Northbrook police officer has been sentenced to two year probation after he agreed to plead guilty to charges that he stole jewelry from a home he’d been dispatched to check on.
Enrique Guzman, 34, resigned from his position as a Northbrook officer shortly after he was charged in late January with felony theft and official misconduct. On Tuesday, Guzman agreed to plead guilty to one count of official misconduct, and in exchange for his guilty plea prosecutors dropped the theft charges, officials said.
Besides probation, Cook County Circuit Judge Garritt Howard sentenced Guzman to fines and fees totaling $629.
