Lexington, NE (AP) - A former Lexington police officer been sentenced to 120 days in jail.
Lexington radio station KRVN says 49-year-old Terrance Smith was sentenced on Monday. Smith had pleaded no contest and was convicted of attempted burglary. Two other charges were dropped in exchange for his plea.
Authorities say Smith entered Landmark Implement near Lexington after business hours on May 19 last year, while on duty and without a law enforcement purpose. Video surveillance shows Smith searching through drawers and cabinets in offices before leaving without taking anything of value.
Smith was fired shortly thereafter. He'd been on the force for seven years.
