Sweet music for ex-cop in karaoke case
A FIRED NYPD lieutenant accused of taking bribes from Queens karaoke club managers is singing a happy tune now that he won’t face jail time, officials said Friday.
Robert Sung (photo) pleaded guilty Monday to attempted official misconduct in a deal with prosecutors.
In return, he received a conditional discharge — meaning he won’t receive jail time and if he stays out of trouble for six months, his record would be expunged.
He was one of six cops caught up in the scandal at the 109th Precinct in Flushing, which came to light in December 2015.
Investigators accused Sung and another officer of taking payments from karaoke bar managers in exchange for quashing arrests and tipping them off about police raids.
The NYPD fired Sung, a 23-year veteran, in February 2016.
