Greenville officer pleads guilty in federal case

ABERDEEN, Miss. — Greenville police officer Cedric Sorrell has pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of withholding information on a crime.

The Delta Democrat Times reports that prosecutors dropped other counts in exchange for the plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Aberdeen.

Sorrell and Officers Bryant Kennedy and Samuel McVay were indicted on civil rights charges.

Prosecutors say the officers, on May 3, 2012, allegedly knocked to the ground and injured a man and removed about $1,300 removed from his wallet.

Kennedy pleaded guilty to conspiracy in January.

McVay is scheduled for trial on Feb. 11 in federal court in Oxford.

No sentencing dates have been set for Sorrell and Kennedy.
