From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:
Former Police Chief Armando “AJ” Perez and Personnel Director David Dunn have agreed to plead guilty, according to court documents, to conspiring to rig the city’s police chief examination so that Perez would win and then lying to federal authorities about it.
According to court documents, the two men, who resigned from the city after their arrests last month, are due in U.S. District Court in Bridgeport Monday morning and expected to waive grand jury indictments and then plead guilty to reduced charges: conspiracy to commit wire fraud and making false statements.
On Sept. 10, Perez and Dunn were charged by federal prosecutors with defrauding the city of Bridgeport on allegations of rigging the 2018 police chief examination and making false statements to federal agents in the course of the investigation.
The federal complaint paints a picture of Perez as desperate to be appointed permanent top cop but frustrated with his inability to fill out the necessary paperwork and answer exam questions. So, allegedly, Dunn assisted Perez by providing him with the test questions in advance and two unnamed police officers helped Perez write his application and test responses.
