Former Pittsburgh police chief Nate Harper intends to plead guilty after a grand jury returned an indictment against him Friday charging him with conspiracy and tax evasion, his attorney said.
Robert Del Greco Jr. said the evidence against Mr. Harper was “unambiguous.” He said Mr. Harper would plead guilty to all five counts contained in the indictment without modification.
“It’s a felony,” Mr. Del Greco said this afternoon. “It’s cost him his career, possibly his pension. I don’t know that I could put it any better.”
He said his client’s actions were indefensible, that the “lure of the account” proved an “irresistible temptation.”
