    A Florida police chief, along with three other officers, are believed to have framed innocent people for burglaries that they were not able to solve. The motive was to advance their careers and make it look like they were doing a really good job solving crimes.
    They selected individuals that would be easy to pin the blame on, in most of the cases individuals with a prior criminal record.

    In a few cases they had identified a suspect in a burglary, but didn't have enough evidence, so they falsified evidence to arrest the suspect and be able to have a case.
    In these cases, they may have actually believed that the suspect was likely guilty, but they were not certain.

    The police chief was sentenced to 3 years.
