A former Lubbock Police officer avoided jail time, but he must surrender his peace officer license.
In a plea bargain, Blake Littlejohn pleaded guilty to harassment. He was originally charged with a violation of civil rights. The charge stemmed from a traffic stop last year where a witness says a 20-year-old woman was escorted to Littlejohn's patrol car, and performed a sexual act at his request.
As part of the plea agreement, made last month, Littlejohn will serve one year of probation and surrender his peace officer license. NewsChannel 11 spoke with Assistant District Attorney Matt Powell Tuesday who said,"the punishment was appropriate," based on a grand jury's finding.
