Ex-DeKalb deputy chief admits bribes, awaits sentencing

Ex-DeKalb deputy chief admits bribes, awaits sentencing
April 1, 2011 --

A former deputy DeKalb County police chief has admitted taking a businessman’s bribes. Ex-Lt. Donald E. Frank faces up to five years in federal prison. Sentencing has not been scheduled, which often means that prosecutors want to see whether a defendant can supply useful information — and, if necessary, testify — about criminal activity by others.

Former DeKalb police Lt. Willie Daren Durrett was arraigned Monday for allegedly taking bribes from a small business owner, forcing a delay in the trial of co-defendant Donald Frank.
