Former deputy sentenced for lying to investigators

MEMPHIS, TN -(WMC-TV) – A former Shelby County sheriff’s deputy has been sentenced to prison for lying to investigators and helping an inmate get out of jail.

“Law enforcement officials are held to a higher standard, and truthfulness and integrity are at the core of the law enforcement profession,” said FBI Special Agent Aaron T. Ford in a written statement. “When an officer can no longer be trusted due to a lack of regard for the truth, the FBI will take action to ensure that justice is served because no one is above the law.”

Eric Curtis was sentenced to more than two years behind bars after pleading guilty to making a false statement in August 2008.
