Second Hartford Cop Fired in a Week

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Hartford’s police department has fired its second officer in a week, saying he mistreated a prisoner in police custody.

Hartford Police Chief Daryl Roberts said Friday that Officer Rhashim Campbell’s firing comes after a hearing panel concluded he mistreated the domestic violence suspect on Nov. 1, 2009.Campbell was arrested by fellow Hartford officers in December 2009 on charges of assault and fabricating evidence. He has pleaded not guilty, and his case is pending in Hartford Superior Court.

A message was left Friday for his attorney.

Another officer, 15-year veteran Hector Robles, was fired Monday for falsifying overtime on time cards. Robles, also a state representative, was re-elected to his General Assembly post on Tuesday.
