Sweet mu­sic for ex-cop in karaoke case

New York Daily News - - NEWS - Rocco Parascandola and Thomas Tracy

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.
