Police officer sentenced in drug-dealing plot

BALTIMORE -
A Baltimore police officer has been sentenced to eight years in prison on drug and weapons charges.
 
Thirty-six-year-old Kendell Richburg had pleaded guilty in March to conspiracy to distribute heroin and possession of a firearm to further drug trafficking. He was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Baltimore.
 
Prosecutors say Richburg told a drug dealer when it was safe to sell drugs, and in return, the dealer gave information about his customers so Richburg could arrest them.
