Prison next for former small town police chief in gun scam

By  | 

A former small-town police chief has been sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison for crimes related to the sale of guns and ammunition.
Robert Reznick was chief in Oakley, a village in Saginaw County. He created a crew of 120 reserve officers from outside Oakley, obtained guns at a reduced rate and then resold them to the reserves for a profit.
Reznick told a judge that he's "humiliated and completely remorseful." The 366-day sentence Thursday will make him eligible for early release for good behavior. He had pleaded guilty to fraud and a tax crime.
Judge Thomas Ludington says he read many letters that portrayed Reznick as a "remarkable man." But the judge says his crimes weren't a "one-time error of judgment."
