WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- D.C. police officials say that a former officer accused of fraud pleaded guilty on Thursday to charges.
David Cephas pleaded guilty to three counts of misdemeanor fraud in the second degree related to his time as a police officer in 2008 and 2009. Cephas served in the department for 22 years before resigning in June of this year.
According to police, an internal audit and affairs investigation started in 2009 found that Cephas "falsified deployment logs documenting certification times in the deployment of the Department's mobile photo radar equipment." His actions forced 200 radar citations to be recalled and more than $17,000 to be refunded, say police.
Cephas agreed to resign from the department and pay $17,550 in restitution as part of his plea agreement.
