Cochran Pleads Guilty

  • South Side Ald. Willie Cochran pleaded guilty Thursday to a felony charge of wire fraud for misusing his campaign funds for gambling and other personal expenses, including tuition for his daughter.

    Cochran, 66, appeared before U.S. District Judge Jorge Alonso at the Dirksen Federal Courthouse, where federal prosecutors outlined his plea agreement. Cochran pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud, which accused him of withdrawing money from the 20th Ward Activities Fund — meant to go to children and seniors — and used it for personal expenses.

    According to the plea agreement, while Cochran personally donated more than $32,000 to the fund, he withdrew approximately $14,285 more than he gave, and converted it for his personal use. Cochran spent the funds on gambling at Ameristar Casino, his daughter’s college expenses, and goods for his home.
Anyone know when they're going to attach GoPro's to aldercreatures?

UPDATE: Watch for the "former Chicago cop" old saws to start up again.

The radio related the statistic that 32 alderman have been convicted of corruption charges since 1972. Where is the consent decree? More importantly, where is the outrage by citizens on a governing body which can confiscate their wealth through taxes and fees when they as a controlling legal authority cannot perform their duties in an established ethical, lawful, honest and transparent manner time and time again? Not to mention regulations and laws to their liking that limit their personal freedoms through ordinances enforced by administrative bodies in a system of "fairness" under direct control of the shitty council?

Why do all of the recently charged, arrested, indicted or convicted alderman always wear sharp (some not so expensive) suits?
Golly, look at me!
At least Burke has a head start with the pin stripe outfit and the cheap old school government issued eye glasses. LOL

It happened here too.
Why do you think Fr Tom retired?
He was fed up with the BS Shenanigans that were perpetrated by DM the wanna be chaplain and her partner in crime BO. These 2 were President and Vice President of an Organization and were soliciting the city to make it a paid position. It was uncovered that these were involved in some funny business with the funds, this is why it is now under the control of the CPMF. This DM is the same woman who would show up at ER Rooms when Officers were shot and demanded entry by saying " I am a Police Chaplain". As she had no Credentials she was removed several times by Stroger Hospital Police, and informed not to return. She also went to the Building with the Dungeon in the basement and collected for some BS fund she made up, and pocked the money.

If you go to the Real Chaplains website and scrolled down near the bottom, you will notice a disclaimer/warning. This was posted to make the above fake chaplain aware that legal action would be taken if she continued to identify herself as Police Chaplain.

To all officers, if you ever are approached by a person Identifying themselves as a Police Chaplain with the initials DM. Do not give her any Money.

A chicago police sgt ripped off the police sgt's union not that long ago. the suburban cop who killed himself by faking an attack was stealing from a boy scout troop among other things.

It is very common for people who have access to money that is not routinely audited by an independent third party to steal. Cops are not immune to the temptation of easy money.

Finally a jury that tries the facts:
Former East Pittsburgh officer found not guilty in fatal shooting of unarmed teenager

https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/22/us/officer-michael-rosfeld-antwon-rose-pittburgh-testimony/index.html

You read the headline your thinking hmm then you see this in the story:
Though unbeknownst to Rosfeld when he fatally shot Rose, police later found two stolen guns in the car, traces of gun residue on Antwon Rose's hand and the empty clip of a handgun in his pants pocket, according to court records.

Ahh yes the thug offender wasn’t innocent after all as usual, but here the jury was not like crook county where a law abiding copper will never get anything near a fair verdict ever!,

Just wait til his wife Melissa Conyears Ervin becomes city treasurer.
You'll see some old school west side thievery go citywide!
