BOSTON (AP) - A 31-year-old man who prosecutors say posed as a police officer to steal money from immigrants and homeless people has been sentenced to eight years in prison.
Eric Mathison,of Plymouth, pleaded guilty Friday in Suffolk Superior Court to 18 criminal charges, including four counts each of robbery and impersonating a police officer.
In several of the incidents, prosecutors said Mathison identified himself as a Chelsea police officer. In once case, four men were ordered out of a van and into a nearby building, where they were handcuffed and robbed of $700.
Judge Stephen Neel also sentenced Mathison on Monday to one year probation and ordered him to undergo a mental health evaluation and stay away from the people he victimized.

This shitbird was grabbed by a guy I worked with in Orchard Park in Roxbury doing the same thing about 9 months before this happened in Chelsea. Crown Vic, police scanner, badge around the neck, Air-Soft BB pistol. Thank goodness for that high $1,000 bail and non-existant dangerousness hearing (that never happened) in Roxbury District Court.
