Former Memphis Officer Sentenced On Drug Charges

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – A former Memphis police officer has been sentenced to four years in federal prison for attempting to buy drugs while on duty.

The U.S. attorney’s office for West Tennessee said 37-year-old Michael Sinnock was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty in June to one count of attempted possession of hydrocodone with the intent to distribute.

Prosecutors said Sinnock had approached a confidential informant about buying marijuana and 20 Lortab pills.

Sinnock met with the informant this past Dec. 14 about the marijuana while on duty and in uniform.
