LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former Bell Police Chief Randy Adams testified before a state pension panel as he seeks to increase his pension to more than a half-million dollars for his stint as top cop in the scandal-plagued city - but gave few answers while he was on the stand.
The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/NFMRIn ) Adams invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself 20 times while he was on the witness stand Thursday.
Adams is challenging a California Public Employees' Retirement System decision not to include his year as chief in Bell in the calculations for his pension.
If he wins his claim, he'll get $510,000 and become the second-highest-paid public pensioner in the state.
Adams is not among the eight former city leaders facing criminal public corruption charges.
