Former officers plead guilty on civil rights counts
Two former Chattanooga police officers pleaded guilty in federal court today to conspiracy to violate civil rights.
Frank J. Goodwyn and ODell Draper III, who each resigned from the Chattanooga Police Department during the investigation, will be sentenced in June. They each face up to 10 years in federal prison, a $250,000 fine and restitution to the victims.
The men admitted to targeting Hispanics while on duty and taking their money. They also face state charges including official oppression, extortion and theft.
