James Burke, Suffolk's disgraced former police chief, completed his federal sentence Thursday.
In 2012, Christopher Loeb, of Smithtown, stole a duffel bag filled with pornography and sex toys from Burke's SUV.
Burke beat Loeb while he was in his custody, then tried to orchestrate a coverup.
He was sentenced to 46 months for depriving Loeb of his civil rights.
