How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Former FBI Agent Gets 10 Years in Prison for Trying to Derail Investigation

A former FBI agent was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday for trying to derail a Utah investigation involving kickbacks from defense contractors.

ABC News reports that Robert Lustyik Jr., 52, created a dossier of fake interviews with former FBI agents to make it appear as if he were a key government source.

Lustyik said he wanted to break one more case.

“No man is above the law, and for nine months I forgot that,” he said. “I took a boyhood dream of wanting to become an FBI agent and I destroyed it.”

Prosecutor Maria Lerner said there’s no excuse.

“He sold his badge and he violated his oath,” Lerner said. “He was desperately trying to get rich off of destroying a criminal case.”
