Last summer, several Melrose Park Police officers were indicted for alleged criminal wrong doing. Among those indicted were SD89 Board member Ric Cervone and the Chief of Police Vito Scavo. However, instrumental to those indictments were sworn statements and testimony from investigator Scott J. Fitts. Fitts now finds himself indicted for wire fraud, false statements, obstruction of justice, and income tax evasion to name just a few of the charges. If Fitts is the star witness in the case against the Melrose Park Police officers, it certainly looks like the seven Melrose Park officers are in the clear.
Have you heard anything about this indictment? How does it affect Fitts' testimony against the Melrose Park police officers?
