Albany- Two Albany Police officers are finding themselves on the other side of the law. Sgt. Alfred Shelton and Rookie Officer Demetria Gaskins are both expected to turn themselves in Thursday morning. The two were indicted by the Grand Jury Wednesday.
Shelton, a 23-year veteran, is facing a 51 count indictment for working two other security details at Krystals and the South Slappey Village while he was on duty as a police officer.
Gaskins is charged in an eleven count indictment for stealing social security numbers and opening cell phone accounts at Alltel without permission. District Attorney Ken Hodges says, Interim Police Chief Boren is committed to restoring integrity to the Albany Police Department.
"I know that there have been a number of officers that have been indicted by this office for violating the law and we want to make sure that we work together in cleansing the department of those who don't want to uphold the law," said District Attorney Ken Hodges.
Both Gaskins and Shelton are expected to be fired. Both could also face significant jail time because each count of theft by deception carries up to ten years in jail.
