Judge: Ex-Philly cop can go to jail next month
Judge: Ex-Philly cop convicted in extortion case doesn't have to go to jail immediately
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' A federal judge says a former high-ranking member of the Philadelphia Police Department can remain free on bail until next month, denying a request by federal prosecutors who said he made intimidating statements toward his accuser and an FBI informant.

The Philadelphia Inquirer ( ) reports U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III on Tuesday denied the government's request that former Inspector Daniel Castro be jailed immediately.

Following his sentencing last week Castro called himself a victim and held up pictures of the informant and a former business associate he pleaded guilty to plotting to shake-down for $90,000 over a failed real estate deal.

Castro's lawyer argued his client was entitled to express his feelings.

Castro is to begin his five-year sentence on November 15.
