City Employee Gets 18 Months Probation for Bootlegging Polka Party DVDs on City Equipment

A veteran Warren, Michigan employee who used city equipment to make bootleg polka party DVDs for profit will serve 18 months of probation and pay $600 in restitution and fines.

Frederic DeChausse, a cable specialist for Warren TV, pleaded no contest on Monday to a misdemeanor count of copying audiovisual recording for gain and embezzlement.

Under a plea agreement, prosecutors dismissed a charge of copying audiovisual recordings for gain.

DeChausse, 71, was arrested last month after an undercover officer purchased 11 polka DVDs from DeChausse for $150.
