The judge sentenced the former police officer to a year in jail. He was guilty of breach of trust for accessing the images with no good reason, and to fraud for claiming $28,000 in overtime — at least several hours of which he admitted to spending watching child porn.
"A Canadian Cop Claimed He Was Working Overtime. He Was Watching Child Porn From the Evidence Vault." is from the March 22, 2017 True Crime section of The Washington Post. It was written by Avi Selk and narrated by Sam Scholl.
