Former NYC top cop is now an inmate

Associated Press

VALHALLA, N.Y. — Former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik is now just another number in the county jail.

Westchester County jail spokesman Justin Pruyne (PRYN') says Kerik was given the number 210717 and a single-bed cell when he arrived Tuesday afternoon.

Kerik is awaiting a federal trial on corruption charges. He had his $500,000 bail revoked for disclosing secret pretrial information.

Pruyne says the 54-year-old Kerik was processed like any other incoming inmate but was segregated from the general jail population because of his background in law enforcement.

Kerik won glowing reviews for his leadership after the Sept. 11 attacks. He was later nominated to lead the federal Homeland Security agency but withdrew as corruption allegations mounted.
