“Three officials from Bucks County — a district judge, a township’s safety director and a deputy constable — have been indicted on federal charges of conspiracy and money laundering, prosecutors announced Friday.
According to the indictment, the trio were trapped in a sting operation during which they laundered $400,000 in cash that undercover law enforcement officials and a confidential witness told them were proceeds from white-collar fraud and drug trafficking.
For their efforts, they pocketed fees totaling $80,000, the indictment alleges.”

- Robert P. Hoopes, 69, of Doylestown, the director of Public Safety in Lower Southampton since February.
- Bernard T. Rafferty, 62, of Langhorne, a county deputy constable since 1998.”
