Ex-Illinois troopers gets probation for bribery, misconduct

DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) — A former Illinois state trooper convicted of bribing a police officer to ticket his former girlfriend has been sentenced to probation.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports ( ) that 47-year-old Keith Lumsargis received the sentence Thursday from Circuit Court Judge Nancy Fahey. Vermilion County State’s Attorney Jacqueline Lacy had asked the court for a four-year prison sentence.

Jurors in November found Lumsargis guilty of two counts of bribery and two counts of official misconduct for offering a police officer a steak dinner for giving his ex-girlfriend a traffic ticket.

Lumsargis testified his actions were out of concern for the woman’s teenage daughter, who might have been in the vehicle with her when she’d been drinking. But prosecutors contended he was trying to get back at her for breaking up with him.
