More Pleas in the Chicago PD SOS Case

The Chicago Police Department's Special Operations Section, or SOS, is being brought to account. 2 more ex-Chicago cops plead guilty in corruption investigation -- chicagotribune.com These are the cooperating witnesses. Plead now. Testify later. (They are not off the hook for other charges.)
James McGovern formerly a sergeant, pleaded guilty in Cook County Criminal Court to a misdemeanor charge of attempted obstruction of justice and was sentenced to two years of probation. Former officer Frank Villareal pleaded guilty to a felony theft charge and was sentenced to four years of probation. Both men had resigned from the Police Department.
SOS is reputed to have been involved in robbery (committing not solving), extortion, fabrication of evidence, ... everything up to and including murder for hire is on the table.
