NEW YORK — A Bronx man who pleaded guilty to five counts of impersonating a federal agent or officer was sentenced Friday to six months in prison. The sentencing is the result of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR).
Carl Osborne, 38, in the guise of a federal officer, represented himself to be an ICE officer. According to court documents, between August 2012 and May 2013, on five separate occasions, Osborne, complete with a fake uniform, credentials, phony gun, and driving a vehicle equipped with lights and sirens, pulled over several vehicles in the Bronx and Westchester County.
Osborne's sentence includes three years of supervised release with six months of home detention.
