Dec. 07, 2017
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A chiropractor and his wife bribed at least four St. Louis police officers to get access to information on hundreds of accident victims.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the chiropractor's wife, Galina Davis, used the information to solicit patients for her husband, Mitchell Davis. He then pressured some of the victims to exaggerate their symptoms to get larger insurance settlements.
Mitchell Davis pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiracy and making a false statement. His wife pleaded guilty to misdemeanor conspiring to access a computer without authorization.
Also Thursday, former officer Terri Owens pleaded guilty to bribery. She admitted she took thousands of dollars in bribes from 2011 to 2016 to give the information to Galina Davis. Two other officers have been indicted. A fourth suspected officer has not yet been indicted.
