A former Bertram police chief has pled guilty to oppression and abuse, surrendered his peace officer's license, received an eight-day jail sentence, and exhibited “remorse” which influencing his judge-ordered penalty, officials said.

James J. (JJ) Wilson will face four days in jail on each of two counts of official oppression and five years probation on one count of abuse of official capacity, according to a release by the 33rd/424th Judicial District Attorney's Office.

As part of the plea on June 6, Wilson must permanently surrender his peace officer license, pay a $500 fine and $50 restitution to the subject of the charge.
