A former Nashville police officer who also was a Teamsters organizer has pleaded guilty to charges he broke into a children's camp to set up cameras to discredit members of a rival union.
Calvin Hullett, 45, pleaded guilty Tuesday during his trial as part of a plea agreement. It was reported that he faces between 10 and 16 months in federal prison.
Hullett was arrested in 2007 after authorities learned that he had installed cameras at the camp for disadvantaged children operated by the Fraternal Order of Police. At the time, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Hullett's employer, and the FOP were competing to represent Nashville police officers at the bargaining table.
The Teamsters took over representation of the police in 2005 but were decertified in 2007 after a petition drive by the FOP.
Investigators have alleged the hidden cameras were placed at the camp to try to discredit the FOP by catching officers engaged in some type of misconduct.
Earlier, former Shelby County deputy Joe Everson pleaded guilty to lying to investigators in connection with the incident.
