Convicted dirty cop wanted house arrest; he gets 14 years in prison

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

After being sentenced yesterday to 14 years in prison for selling drugs, robbing prostitutes, running a brothel, and making false arrests—all while hiding behind a police badge—former top Contra Costa narcotics cop Norman Wielsch thought he got a raw deal. “In Norm’s mind, he was unfairly singled out because he was a cop,” his attorney said after U. S. District Judge Saundra Brown Armstrong ordered Weilsch to prison, where his longtime partner in crime, “Mommy P.I.” private investigator Christopher Butler, is already serving eight years after pleading guilty to similar charges last year.

And what was Wielsch hoping for? He wanted the judge to bypass federal law and sentence him to house arrest. Chronicle; Contra Costa Times
