Ex-police officer given probation

December 19, 1990

A former police officer has been given two years' probation and fined $2,457 for filing a fictitious tax return.

Edward L. Jackson, 41, a Baltimore cab driver, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in September for attempting to defraud the government of more than $6,000 in tax refunds, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Jamie Bennett. Jackson was not entitled to the refunds, the prosecutor said.

Jackson was a city police officer from 1971 to 1973 and worked as a state trooper from 1974 to 1979, Bennett said.
