Willet waived indictment by grand jury and plead guilty to a felony Information on December 21, 2016, before Magistrate Judge Dave Whalin, charging the former detective with theft from interstate shipment.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Bryan Calhoun and was investigated by the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department's Public Integrity Unit and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
