HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAAY) - A second Huntsville police officer previously indicted by a grand jury turned in his badge Wednesday morning.

Both Wesley and Moore are facing multiple felony charges for allegations that include drug possession, tampering with evidence and false reporting.

Undercover NYPD Officers Frame 4 On Drug Charges
NYPD Investigating Incident, Officers Placed On Modified Duty
NEW YORK (CBS) ― Undercover police officers who arrested four men on drug charges are under investigation after surveillance video proved the men they arrested committed no crime.

Drug charges against brothers Jose Colon and Maximo Colon, along with two of their friends have been dropped.

The undercover NYPD officers are seen on video dancing in the street, then attempting to frame four innocent men.

"I asked police officer why are you arresting me," said Maximo Colon. "Never did I get an answer."

The investigators swore under oath they bought drugs from the four men. Jose and Maximo colon say that didn't happen.

"The cops are supposed to help us," said a shaken Jose Colon.

Defense lawyers say the surveillance cameras proved their clients were framed.

"It was nauseating," said defense lawyer Rochelle Berliner.

Two hours of video showed no contact at all between the four men arrested and undercover officers - proof that lead prosecutors to drop charges against the four men, and even declare in court the men did not commit the crime.

Defense lawyers say it's disturbing but not uncommon.

"As defense attorneys you know it exists more often than government wants you to believe," said Brad Wolk.

In the 6 months it took to clear the Colon brothers names, they lost their business and their savings.

As a result of his ordeal, Maximo Colon has lost trust in police officers.

The two men are now involved in a civil suit against the city and hope to one day rebuild their lives.

The NYPD is investigating the officers involved in this incident. Two of the officers are reportedly on modified duty.

Former Conn. officer sentenced to life in attack

Beverly Hills, Fla. (AP) -- Florida authorities say a retired New Britain police officer has been sentenced to life in prison for the rape and torture of his estranged wife, who shot him in the chest to escape.

Daniel Begley Senior, who was a New Britain officer for 24 years, was convicted of sexual battery and kidnapping. It came in connection with the November 2006 attack in Citrus County, Florida.

Authorities say it was a revenge attack because he was angry that she wanted a divorce.

Prosecutors say he tied her up, put duct tape over her mouth and kept her captive for hours while he beat, raped and tortured her.

She was able to free herself when Begley left the room to check on their young children, and she shot him in the chest with his .38-caliber revolver when he came back.

He was hospitalized, but later recovered. His attorney says he'll appeal.
