Former Memphis officer to plead guilty

MEMPHIS, TN -(AP) – A former Memphis police sergeant has agreed to plead guilty to charges that he shot himself in the abdomen and then tried to blame the shooting on a Hispanic man, his defense attorney said Friday.

Norman Benjamin’s defense lawyer Leslie Ballin said he and state prosecutors have agreed on a deal in which Benjamin will plead guilty at a later date to charges of false reporting, solicitation to commit first-degree murder, and unlawful sale, loan or gift of a firearm.
