Revere cop charged in case-throwing sting
Todd Randall, a Revere police officer, was arrested today on charges he was caught accepting $200 in FBI bribe money in exchange for fixing a court case in Chelsea District Court and then lying about it to FBI agents, the US Attorney's office in Boston reports.
According to the US Attorney's office, Randall, 40, drove to an Everett home of an FBI informant on Jan. 22, 2010 - while in uniform and in his cruiser - to take the money. Authorities charge that Randall denied making the trip or taking the money even when FBI agents told him they had a recording of him.
If convicted, Randall faces five years in federal prison.
