Former Phila. police inspector re-sentenced to five years in jail
PHILADELPHIA - March 15, 2013 -- Former Philadelphia Police Inspector Daniel Castro was re-sentenced to five years in prison Friday.
Back in October 2011, Castro was sentenced to 60 months for extortion and lying to the FBI.
He was accused of scheming to shake down a former business partner in order to recover $90,000.
In January, an appeals court reversed the false statement conviction.
But that reversal didn't change his sentence.
Castro was a rising star in the police department and dreamed of someday becoming Commissioner.
He headed the department's traffic division prior to his arrest in November 2010.
