MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A second one-time police officer is going to federal prison for stealing from motorists on Interstate 65 in south Alabama.
A federal judge in Montgomery sentenced former Fort Deposit police officer Carlos Tyson Bennett to more than three years in prison.
Both men pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy and civil rights violations. They admitted taking hundreds of dollars from motorists during traffic stops on I-65 in 2009.
