Nearby: Former Police Chief Pleads Guilty to Extortion

A former East Washington police chief pleaded guilty in federal court to charges of violating the Hobbs Act, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced last week.

Donald Abraham Solomon, 56, of 145 Lemoyne Avenue, Washington, pleaded
guilty to three counts before United States District Judge Joy Flowers Conti.

In connection with the guilty plea, the court was advised that Solomon was the chief of police of East Washington Borough. He received payments from a purported drug dealer, who was an undercover FBI agent, to protect drug shipments and to purchase law enforcement-restricted police equipment.

Conti scheduled sentencing for 3:30 p.m. May 3, 2013. The law provides for a total sentence of 60 years in prison, a fine of $750,000, or both.

Pending sentencing, Solomon will remain on bond.

The FBI conducted the investigation that led to the prosecution of Donald Abraham Solomon.
