JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Robert Shegog, a former JPD Narcotics detective, had pled guilty to a federal bribery charge. He faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Shegog admitted that while working as a narcotics detective with JPD in 2010, he told a Hinds County criminal defendant that he would try to get him a sentence reduction on an outstanding drug charge for $45,000.

In May, when Shegog was charged, authorities said his case was related to a bribery case against former Jackson Police Officer Tony Davis.

U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate will sentence Shegog September 12.
