Former Stoughton Sergeant convicted

Former Stoughton police Sgt. Anthony Bickerton a 30 year veteran of the Department was sentenced to 1 year in Federal prison yesterday in connection with lying to FBI agents who were investigating a stolen property racket within the department.

Bickerton was one of three Officers connected to the stolen Televisions investigation. One of the others was Former detective Arlindo F. Romeiro who was sentenced to three years’ probation last month for lying to agents. He resigned in October and assisted in the investigation, as did officer Lino Azul.

Stoughton has been a Police Department in turnmoil over the last few years with revelations of Illegal activities and allegations of coverups by former Police Chief Manuel Cachopa. In April they swore in Paul Shastany as Chief of Police, and to say the former Lieutenant from Framingham has his work cut out for him in rebuilding the reputation of the Department is an understatement. A 28 year law enforcement veteran, he comes with a reputation of integrity and strongly held convictions. He will need all of it.
