A former NYPD police officer who admitted his involvement in a widespread ticket fixing scheme will not serve jail time or community service, according to the Bronx DA’s office.
Christopher Manzi, 45, was previously charged in a 158 count indictment on multiple counts of grand larceny, official misconduct, obstruction of governmental administration, conspiracy and criminal solicitation.
Manzi, a former Patrolmen's BenevolentAssociation delegate who retired from the NYPD in 2013, was granted a conditional discharge by the judge, and will not serve jail time. The Bronx DA’s office said they had asked that Manzi serve 1,500 hours of community service.

Ramos was sentenced up to 23 1/2years in prison in January after pleading guilty to insurance fraud, ticket fixing, selling counterfeit CDs and DVDs and planning to hire a hit man to take out a witness, the Daily News reported.
