November 24, 2009 (CHICAGO) --
A judge has increased the bail for a Chicago police sergeant who was arrested on theft and money laundering charges.Sergeant John Pallohusky's bail was raised after prosecutors changed their estimate for the amount he allegedly stole from the police union from $600,000 to $1 million.
The judge allowed the sergeant's attorneys to post 10 percent of $350,000.
Pallohusky was the president of the Chicago Police Sergeants Association.
Prosecutors contend that he used union money to pay for trips to Las Vegas, meals and a second home in Chicago.
