SACRAMENTO, CA - A former Sacramento police officer was sentenced to five years in state prison with suspended execution Friday for falsifying police reports.
Sacramento Superior Court Judge Patrick Marlette ordered Brandon Mullock, 28, to serve formal felony probation with one year in county jail.
Mullock's actions forced the Sacramento County District Attorney's Offices to dismiss 79 cases, most of them DUI arrests. There had been convictions in 73 of the cases, said D.A. spokesperson Shelly Orio, and they were set aside.
Mullock previously pleaded no contest to four felony charges: three counts of filing false police reports and one count of perjury as part of a plea deal.
