Money 'worth more than the oath they swore,' says victim of harassment by Calgary officers

Police corruption can not be tolerated, argued a prosecutor in asking a Calgary judge to consider a sentence of four years in prison for an officer who was convicted of bribery and harassment.

A sentencing hearing began this week for three officers — Brian Morton, Brad McNish and Anthony Braile — who were convicted last year of corruption-related crimes.

Their victim, Akele Taylor, was followed, confronted and harassed for nearly two years after her ex-boyfriend Ken Carter — with whom she shares a child — hired current and former police officers to help him in his effort to gain custody of their daughter.

Abuse of power was a central theme to the sentencing hearing, which also heard from Taylor through a written statement, read aloud by prosecutor Julie Snowdon.
