Former St. Louis police officer Bobby Lee Garrett has pleaded guilty to quite a few crimes. Garrett and two fellow officers have been caught. We all know there are more like these officers out there. Make sure to read the full story.

A corrupt former St. Louis police officer who helped trigger a re-examination of hundreds of criminal convictions and the dismissal of dozens in just the last year pleaded guilty of six felonies Friday, admitting that he stole money, planted evidence and lied to cover up his crimes.

Bobby Lee Garrett, 49, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in St. Louis to theft of government property, two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, two counts of making false statements and one count of misapplication of government funds.

Garrett will serve 28 months in federal prison under the plea agreement. In exchange for his guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to drop three other charges.
