The final defendant has been sentenced in a towing scam that netted hundreds of thousands of dollars for crooked police officers. Former Chicago police officer Francis Zoller was sentenced to a year in prison Wednesday, after pleading guilty to fraud and extortion last year. Zoller was charged with participating in an insurance fraud scheme involving a staged accident, in which he accepted a $2,000 bribe from a tow truck driver who was cooperating with the FBI, after creating a false police report about an accident that never happened, so the driver could bill an insurance company.
