Federal authorities have charged another former Jackson police officer with bribery.
Robert Nikita Shegog was charged Wednesday in a criminal information, a type of charge usually filed when a defendant plans to plead guilty.
The document was filed in U.S. District Court in Jackson. It says Shegog solicited and accepted bribes valued at more than $5,000 in transactions related to the department from December 2009 to September 2010.
No attorney was listed in court records.
Authorities say the case is related to the bribery charge against another former officer, Tony Davis, but it's not clear exactly how.
Davis was indicted Oct. 3, but the case was just made public this month.
Court records say Davis tried to bribe another officer related to city transactions. Davis has pleaded not guilty.
