Irondequoit cop guilty of divulging police info

The police officer son of a former Greece police chief imprisoned for misconduct is facing his own prison term after being found guilty of passing confidential information to a drug suspect.

A state Supreme Court judge in Rochester found suspended Irondequoit Police Officer Chad Rahn guilty Tuesday of computer trespassing, official misconduct and criminal facilitation.

Evidence during Rahn’s bench trial included text messages Rahn sent to an acquaintance involved in a drug case. Authorities say Rahn passed along information on an informant who had tipped off police about the suspect.

The 35-year-old Rahn faces a sentence ranging from a conditional discharge to up to four years in prison.

He’s the son of former town of Greece Police Chief Merritt Rahn, who was convicted last year of misconduct and falsifying information.
