Deal struck in double-dipping case

January 30, 2006

Albany -- Criminal charges are settled against a former Albany police officer who was indicted for working other jobs will on duty.

Alfred Shelton will give up his license to be a police officer in the state in exchange for the dismissal of criminal charges against him.

Shelton was facing a 51-count indictment for working two other security details at Krystal and the South Slappey Village while on duty as a police officer.

Shelton was a sergeant with the Albany Police Department, and a 23-year veteran.

Last year, nine other high ranking Albany police officers were also investigated by the GBI for working other jobs while on duty. The GBI found no criminal wrong doing in that investigation.

District Attorney Ken Hodges said that investigation influenced his decision to settle the case against Shelton.
