ABERDEEN -- Former Ecru police officer Jody Mac Rock of Pontotoc has been sentenced to one year in prison on two civil rights violations. 

 

U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock sentenced Rock this past week in U.S. District Court in Aberdeen. 

 

Rock was accused of depriving two motorists of their civil rights in 2008 by demanding money in exchange for destroying traffic tickets. 

 

The indictment said such action deprives a person of his or her constitutional rights for protection against unreasonable searches and seizures. 

 

The U.S. attorney's office also says Rock must complete 100 hours community service. 

 

Rock was ordered to report to prison by Nov. 18.
