LIBERTY - Former Liberty police officer Joey Miller, who resigned last week, has pleaded guilty to removing evidence from a vehicle at the police department without legal authorization.
A criminal complaint filed Tuesday accused Miller, 43, of Jamestown of removing the evidence from the car on Oct. 30 and of taking 41 various music CDs belonging to Mark McKaig.
Miller pleaded guilty to the misconduct charge Tuesday in Casey District Court. It was merged with a charge of theft by unlawful taking under $300. Both are misdemeanors.
Miller was sentenced to 60 days in jail by Judge Michael Loy. The sentence was suspended, and Miller was placed on probation for two years.
