CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A former Cincinnati Police officer could be headed to prison.
Michael Savard pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of bribery and filing a false tax return. The former captain made a deal with a sergeant to retire early so the sergeant could get promoted. He just needed to be paid $5,000.
The dealmaking happened at Cincinnati Police's headquarters and it was all recorded.
The bribery charge could carry a punishment as severe as 10 years in prison, or Savard could get probation. He'll be sentenced later in 2019 or early 2020.
