The Miami Herald reports that a former police chief in Biscayne Park, Florida, pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge of depriving three innocent black men of their civil rights by framing them. Raimundo Atesiano admitted to directing police officers to frame innocent men in cases of unsolved burglaries and break-ins to benefit his department’s crimes record. Atesiano had previously boasted about the department’s success rate. Atesiano reached a plea deal with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and will face sentencing in November.
