D.C. police officer was moonlighting as a pimp

On October 9, 2014 Linwood Barnhill, 48, a former officer with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), was sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of pandering minors for prostitution and one count of possession of child pornography. His short sentence was secured by the plea agreement.

Judge Rosemary M. Collyer coddled the disgraced police officer, telling him: “You have served this community so well … It is sad for me to have to sentence you today. I hope you recover.”
