Court date for D.C. officer charged in sting

D.C. police officer charged in an internal sting with trying to receive stolen property is due in court.

Guillermo Ortiz, who was arrested along with two other officers in a sting this month, faces a determination of attorney hearing Tuesday in D.C. Superior Court.

Ortiz is accused of trying to buy electronics equipment that he thought was stolen. He has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor.

The other two officers, Dioni Fernandez and Silvestre Bonilla, have also pleaded not guilty and have court appearances this month as well.

A fourth D.C. police officer, Jennifer Green, was arrested this month in a similar but unrelated internal sting.
