The ex-Police Chief of Bridgeport, Connecticut, wants to serve house arrest instead of prison time. That’s after former chief A. J. Perez pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators about a cheating scandal to get his job as top cop.

A federal judge has agreed to extend sentencing to April for former Bridgeport police chief A.J. Perez, who pled guilty in a fraud case last year. The judge also extended sentencing for the city's former personnel David Dunn, who also pled guilty in the same case.

Perez also wants a court to make sure his guilty plea in a federal fraud case doesn’t affect his pension.
