Former police commander changes plea in corruption case

Tuesday, January 17, 2006

A former Chicago police commander has changed his plea on corruption charges.

Prosecutors say Michael Accosta pocketed $4,000 that was designated for police recognition luncheons. At one time, Accosta supervised more than 100 police officers at O'Hare and Midway airports.

He originally entered a not guilty plea on mail fraud charges.
