A D.C. police employee was sentenced to six months of intermittent incarceration and six months of home confinement for taking more than $40,000 in bribes to expose private information in relation to traffic crashes.
Aaron Willis, 38, was convicted in October 2018 of one count of bribery and sentenced last Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Channing D. Phillips said.
Prosecutors said Willis, a police customer service representative, conspired with two accomplices–Marvin Parker and Michelle Cage, to connect individuals involved in accidents to legal and medical providers.
In plea paperwork, Willis stated he received bribes of $80 per week from Cage and $80 to $200 per week from Parker from 2015 into 2017. He’d given traffic reports over 12,000 times.
Willis was also sentenced to 36 months of probation.
He is no longer an employee of the police department.
