Former Traffic Court Judge Sentenced for Lying to the FBI
PHILADELPHIA—Willie Singletary, 33, of Philadelphia, was sentenced today to 20 months in prison for lying to the FBI when questioned about ticket fixing at the former Philadelphia Traffic Court. A federal jury found Singletary guilty of the charge in July 2014 following a trial. Three of Singletary’s co-defendants—Michael Lowry, Robert Mulgrew, and Thomasine Tynes—were convicted of committing perjury before the federal grand jury; and co-defendants H. Warren Hogeland, Kenneth Miller, Fortunato Perri, William Hird, and Henry P. Alfano pleaded guilty prior to trial.
In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence Stengel ordered one year of supervised release, a fine of $1,500, and a special assessment of $100.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Denise S. Wolf and Anthony J. Wzorek.
