BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - Sgt. Harold “BJ” Sanford, who was formerly the head of the Bossier City police union, was sentenced in court on Thursday.

Sanford was arrested in Aug. of 2022, by FBI agents. At the time, he faced a charge of obtaining prescription drugs fraudulently and charges for embezzling money from the Bossier City police union fundraiser account.

On May 11, Sanford was sentenced to 12 months and a day. He received credit for time served. Now he’ll be remanded to US Marshall custody to serve the rest of his time in a bureau facility.
