A former police officer, who spent 9 years serving the city of Paterson, has been indicted on charges of conspiracy to plant drugs and false arrest.
Mahmoud Rabboh, 43-years-old, and 2 other individuals concocted a plan to frame another man by planting drugs on him. The two men planted drugs on the victim, who is not named, and afterwards they informed Mr Rabboh to arrest the man, which he did (having full knowledge of the whole scheme), and wrote a false police report of the entire incident as well.
The dirty cop could face the following charges: “of conspiracy to violate civil rights [which] carries a maximum potential penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The charge of deprivation of rights under color of law carries a maximum potential penalty of one year in prison and a fine of up to $100,000,” according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI.
Mr Rabboh is freed on $100,000 bail; Mr Rabboh has been suspended without pay. Read the original at the FBI’s website.
