Bedri Kulla gets a year in prison for violating civil rights of undocumented immigrant

Posted by on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 12:18 PM

Bedri Kulla, the man who posed as an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer to try to blackmail an undocumented immigrant into having a sexual relationship with him, was sentenced to one year in prison today.
Indy contributor Rebekah Cowell just called from the Federal Courthouse in Greensboro, where she was covering the hearing.
After Kulla, who lives in Morrisville, serves his prison term, he will be on probation for another year.
