CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Former Schaumburg police narcotics officer Matthew Hudak, 37, pleaded guilty Tuesday, April 29, 2014 to operating a drug ring with two fellow cops and received what could amount to a 12-year prison sentence.

Hudak is one of three former Schaumburg officers accused of running a drug ring by re-selling cocaine and marijuana they stole from drug dealers and police seizures.

Hudak pleaded guilty to delivery of a controlled substance, official misconduct, burglary and offense of armed violence. He told the judge he was sorry for his actions and for casting a “dark shadow” on the police enforcement community.

Hudak faces up to 30 years in prison.

Co-defendant Terrance O’Brien pleaded guilty in March 2014, and is expected to receive a 12-year prison sentence.

All three officers Matthew Hudak, John Cichy and Terrance O’Brien were told they were on assignment for a tactical operation or sting operation, possibly at a strip mall. When they arrived at their “assignment” or sting operation, the three Schaumburg Special Investigations Bureau police officers quickly learned that they were the subjects of the tactical operation and were arrested by Federal DEA authorities. Hudak, Cichy and O’Brien were arrested on multiple drug-related and/or felony charges Wednesday, January 16, 2013 — late Wednesday/early Thursday morning and were booked at DuPage County jail.

Schaumburg Police immediately reported that the Village of Schaumburg had launched an internal investigation into the actions of the police officers, and that the three Schaumburg Police officers were been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of a criminal investigation being carried out by the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Hudak, and co-defendants John Cichy and Terrance O’Brien all resigned from the Schaumburg Police Department immediately after the arrests.
