Des Moines officer pleads guilty

There must be a rash of this kind of thing going around:
A fired Des Moines police officer accused of sexually assaulting a woman in his squad car has pleaded guilty to charges in the case.

The trial for 35-year-old Maynard Richardson was to begin on Monday in Polk County District Court in Des Moines.

He pleaded guilty to non-felonious misconduct in office and false imprisonment on Friday. The charges aggravated misdemeanors that carry a maximum penalty of one year in prison. Prosecutors dropped a felony charge of assault with intent to commit sexual abuse in exchange for his plea.

No felony conviction, so he can have a gun again.
