Corrupt, jailed Hamilton cop still made over $104K last year, lands on Sunshine List

Ruthowsky was sentenced to 12½ years in a federal penitentiary on May 30 for his role in a pay for protection scheme with a crew of drug dealers. Hamilton police say his salary was cut off on that date, yet Ruthowsky was still one of the province’s highest paid public sector earners last year — despite spending the bulk of it behind bars.
