Hamilton Cop Craig Ruthowsky

The judge called the disgraced cop the "author of his own misfortune" and "a man of profoundly flawed character."The Hamilton cop convicted in a massive pay-for-protection scheme with a crew of drug dealers is now facing the prospect of an additional three years being tacked onto his sentence because he did not pay a fine.

Craig Ruthowsky was sentenced to 12½ years in a federal penitentiary last year, and he was also ordered to pay $250k — the amount the judge said Ruthowsky took in bribes. If Ruthowsky doesn't pay the fine in a year, three more years could be tacked on to his sentence.

"The conduct for which he must now answer was motivated by sheer, unbridled greed"
The sentencing marks the final step in a lengthy and intricate trial that lasted much longer than anticipated. While sentencing was being pushed back, Ruthowsky continued getting paid. He was first suspended in June of 2012.

He made over $104,000 last year, $107,000 in 2015, and $109,000 in 2012.
