ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A former St. Louis police officer has admitted taking bribes to provide information to a chiropractor.

42-year-old Cauncenet Brown pleaded guilty to conspiracy. Assistant U.S. Attorney Dorothy McMurtry says Brown pulled accident reports for two other officers, who provided information to Galina Davis, the wife of St. Louis chiropractor Mitchell Davis.

The officers earned $5 to $15 per report. McMurtry estimated Brown received $14,400. Ex-officers Mark Taylor and Marlon Caldwell have pleaded not guilty in the case.

Former officer Terri Owens pleaded guilty in December and admitted taking thousands of dollars in bribes. The Davises also pleaded guilty and admitted paying bribes for years to solicit patients. Mitchell Davis also admitted pressuring patients to exaggerate their symptoms to increase insurance payouts.
