Anthony Razo, a 49-year-old former police officer for the Los Angeles Police Department pled guilty on Tuesday April 7, 2009 to charges of California insurance fraud and filing a false police report; he was immediately sentenced to one year in jail and three years probation.

Razo admitted to making up a story about two Latino males with shaved heads attacking him and shooting him in the shoulder. He told Judge Norm Shapiro that he was alone when he got wounded and that the men in fact do not exist. Razo also admitted that he intentionally set his BMW on fire and falsely reported it stolen back in January. He also admitted that he filed fraudulent claims against his insurance policies as part of his plea agreement.

Razo’s attorney, explained, “Unfortunately, there are officers suffering from job stress, family issues, financial difficulties or mental problems who feel they have nowhere to turn.”
