East Bay cop, who ran multi-state identity theft ring, only gets 60 days in jail

An Antioch policeman who played an active role in an identity theft ring, recruited others into it and destroyed evidence when a cohort was arrested received a sentence of 60 days in jail last week.

Gary Bostick, 39, pleaded guilty to five felonies in June — four counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy.

U.S. attorneys, citing several similar cases where defendants received lengthy prison terms, had asked White to sentence Bostick to four years and three months in federal prison, according to court records.

The conspiracy involved Bostick, his wife, Robinson and others obtaining personal financial information from dead people and using it to cash fraudulent checks.
