Ex-Miami Officer Guilty In Contempt For Recordings
South Florida Crime
MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — An ex- Miami Police officer pleaded guilty in contempt for posting recordings between himself and police detectives.
Raul Iglesias, 41, a former Miami Police Department sergeant entered the plea last week.
He was previously convicted of several charges related to the theft of drugs and money from cases he had worked.
Just before starting his four-year prison sentence, evidence shows that Iglesias in April 2013 posted the undercover recordings on YouTube and a law enforcement message board. He used the heading “Miami Mice” and the screen name “Chivas Regal.”
The recordings had been sealed by a federal judge.
Authorities say the detectives on the recordings received threats, including notes on their vehicles and in mailboxes. Officers also stopped responding to their backup calls.
