JACKSON, Tenn. - Former Jackson Police Officer David Dreblow was sentenced to federal prison, Thursday.

Earlier this year, Dreblow pleaded guilty to one federal count of conspiracy to violate and violation of civic rights under the color of law. The charge stemmed from an incident in August of 2010 in which Dreblow and fellow officer Marvent Brooks stole more than $1,200 from a crime victim they were supposed to help.

Dreblow was sentenced to six months in prison, followed by six months house arrest then two years supervised release. He was also ordered to pay $600 in restitution to Malcolm Wortham.

In August of 2010, Dreblow and Brooks responded to a call at Wortham's home after he was shot and robbed. While inside his house, they admitted to finding the cash and taking it.

Earlier this year, Brooks was sentenced to one year and 10 months in prison.
