'Tarnished Badge' deputy gets 6 months

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- The last of nearly two dozen Robeson County lawmen prosecuted in a federal misconduct investigation has been sentenced to six months in prison.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Wednesday former sheriff's deputy Waldo Pat Stallings pleaded guilty to making false statements to a government agency. He also received two years' probation.

Stallings was among more than 20 law enforcement officers who pleaded guilty in the last two years to crimes that included kidnapping, money laundering, racketeering, theft of federal money and satellite piracy.

Former Robeson County Sheriff Glenn Maynor is serving a six-year sentence after pleading guilty to perjury and conspiracy charges. His sentence also included three years of probation and $17,550 in restitution.
