Hearings Postponed for Officers Arrested in Corruption Crackdown


Two Prince George’s County officers arrested in the corruption crackdown remain behind bars after a defense attorney asked for a delay.

Sgt. Richard Delabrer had a detention hearing yesterday. His attorney asked for a delay saying the sergeant could face financial hardship because the federal indictment seeks forfeiture of his assests.

Prosecutors are seeking $3.5 million, 25 properties and 13 vehicles. Delabrer's hearing was delayed until Dec. 7.

Cpl. Chong Chin Kim’s hearing was also postponed.

Both were arrested Monday as part of a federal corruption probe. Although the hearings were delayed, both men remain in custody.
