USA vs. Bingham & McRee
Two former Jackson Police Officers were charged in Federal U.S. District Court with stealing drugs after a huge drug bust. The allegation was that twenty-seven (27) bags of crack cocaine were taken at the bust, and that several bags had their contents swapped from cocaine to a baking powder type substance before it was turned in as evidence. Even with the public awareness heightened with the allegations of police misconduct, Mr. Colette was able to successfully overcome seemingly insurmountable odds, and both Bingham and McRee were cleared of any wrongdoing because there was insufficient evidence to support the charges!
