DALLAS (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a former North Texas parole officer has been sentenced to six months in federal prison after accepting bribes from a parolee.

Prosecutors Friday announced the sentence for 32-year-old Breanna Polk of Dallas. Polk, who worked in Garland, pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud in June.

Prosecutors say the parolee left $500 on her desk in 2007 and then, on at least two other occasions between 2007 and 2010, paid her more than $500 to receive favorable treatment concerning his parole.

Prosecutors say the parolee fled the U.S. in 2010 to avoid law enforcement in connection with his illegal drug distribution, then paid Polk $2,000 to indicate was reporting to parole. Polk also agreed to check for arrest warrants for him, searching by a wire communication.
