MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Two Milwaukee police officers are caught in a federal sting and are now accused of covering for drug dealers.
Sergeant Royce Lockett and officer Paul Hill will have a hearing soon to decide whether they qualify for a court-appointed attorney. Lockett is accused of helping the dealer when he said he was having problems with a vehicle he was using to transport at least 500 grams of cocaine.
If convicted, Lockett could get up to 40 years in prison. Hill could spend up to 20 years in prison if found guilty of helping conceal the proceeds of an alleged drug deal.
