Three Cops Face Termination For Bogus Tickets
It’s only taken four years, but it looks like three Chicago police officers who wrote Mark Geinosky bogus parking tickets, are one step away from being fired from the police force.
Readers will recall that the Tribune’s consumer help reporter, Jon Yates aka The Problem Solver stepped in to give Geinosky some help fighting a rash of questionable parking tickets that never showed up on his car’s windshield but always showed up in the mail.
But now, according to the most recent Problem Solver column in the Tribune, it looks like Police Commissioner Garry McCarthy is recommending termination for three of the four cops alleged to be involved, while a fourth cop would have faced a similar fate if not for being fired for an unrelated matter recently.
Geinosky, according to the story, seems shocked.
The three police officers now face a hearing in front of a Police Board to see if their termination holds up.
Here’s the Tribune’s full story, “Problem Solver: Police cite 3 officers over fake tickets; man vindicated.”
