Nhac Duy Truong, 44, who retired Wednesday, February 20 from the Chicopee Police Department as part of a plea deal, submitted the fraudulent petitions for the woman in 2008 and 2009 and subsequently claimed he didn’t even know the woman’s sister, who is the mother of his two children, according to MassLive.com.

He pleaded guilty Thursday, February 21 in U.S. District Court in Springfield, according to MassLive.com.
