How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Former Fla. Detective Gets Two Years for Public Corruption

A former homicide detective in St. Petersburg, Fla. was slapped with two years in prison for public corruption charges, the FBI announced on Wednesday morning.

Anthony V. Foster received the sentence after pleading guilty to wire fraud to deprive the public of honest services on October 20, 2011. Court documents show that from 2009 to June 2011, Foster told a criminal source facing charges, who was secretly working with the FBI, that he would get hold of state judges and attorneys to give them positive information about the source in exchange for cash bribes.

Foster acknowledged in the plea that he met with the source on April 6, 2011, and received $7,075, then again on April 15, where he received another $325 and 40-inch flat screen TV, according to the FBI. Foster later called Assistant State Attorney of Hernando County, who was prosecuting the case against the source, giving positive information about the source’s involvement in various law enforcement investigations. Foster also encouraged other officers to call the attorney with similar claims.
