Former chief Lovett sentenced to 7.5 years

Posted By on Fri, Feb 6, 2015 at 4:25 PM

Former Savannah/Chatham Metro Police Chief Willie C. Lovett was sentenced today to 90 months in federal prison, seven and a half years, for his conviction in gambling and extortion charges. He was also fined $50,000.

Lovett, 65, resigned office in September 2013 as news spread of a sexual harassment allegation against him by a married female officer. The federal charges followed shortly thereafter. He was found guilty in November 2014.

  • Editor's Note: The new normal of crime downtown

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
