A former northern Kentucky police chief has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison for taking more than $127,000 from his department.
U.S. District Judge Danny C. Reeves sentenced 49-year-old Carl Mullen to 45 months on Monday for wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. The U.S. attorney's office said Mullen is a former longtime chief of the Highland Heights Police Department and the Southgate Police Authority.
Mullen previously admitted he fraudulently obtained more than $115,600 in cash advances for personal use and that he stole more than $11,700 from a police authority account
Prosecutors say the thefts occurred from January 2010 through November 2011. He was indicted in June and pleaded guilty in September.
