A New York jury has convicted a former top official of the Drug Enforcement Administration and another DEA employee of failing to disclose their ownership of a New Jersey bikini bar.
The Manhattan jury returned its verdict Thursday after three hours of deliberations.
Prosecutors argued during the 10-day trial that ex-agent David Polos and DEA telecommunications specialist Glen Glover purposely hid their ownership of the Twins Go-Go Lounge. Defense lawyers said disclosure was unnecessary because the bar was an investment.
The government said disclosure was important because DEA employees could be compromised in a business where drug dealing and prostitution can occur.
The 52-year-old Polos of West Nyack, and Glover left court dejected.
Glover's attorney says the verdict is shocking.
