FORMER JPD DETECTIVE SENTENCED ON BRIBERY CHARGE
Jackson, Miss. -- Robert Nikita Shegog, of Terry, Mississippi, was sentenced in U.S. District Court today to 22 months and 15 days imprisonment for bribery, announced U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis and FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel McMullen. Shegog was also ordered to pay a $10,000.00 fine.
Shegog pled guilty to the bribery charge in July, 2012, admitting that, while employed as a Narcotics Detective with the Jackson Police Department in 2010, he advised a Hinds County criminal defendant that he would assist him in getting a sentence reduction on an outstanding drug charge if he would pay Shegog $45,000.00.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jerry Rushing.
