Trial Underway for Former Phila. Cop Accused of Tipping Off Drug Dealers
Former NBA star Jerome "Pooh" Richardson testified Monday in the trial of a former Philadelphia police detective who allegedly betrayed his badge and endangered fellow officers by tipping off drug suspects of an impending raid.
The prosecution rested late Monday afternoon and the defense was expected to begin its case on Tuesday morning.
Former detective Rickie Durham is accused of warning drug boss Alton Coles (a.k.a. "Ace Capone") through a third party that authorities were about to strike with dozens of search warrants back in 2005.
