COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado Springs police officer has returned to work one day after being acquitted of criminal trespassing.

The Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1KlR0xq ) that Sgt. Bradley Pratt was acquitted Tuesday and returned to work Wednesday. He was placed on unpaid administrative leave in June after he was arrested on investigation of entering his ex-girlfriend’s house without permission.

A Colorado Springs Police Department spokeswoman says the department will conduct an administrative investigation now that criminal proceedings are complete.

According to court testimony, on April 19 a woman who met Pratt on an online dating site two weeks prior came home to find the Sargent in her home. He had let himself in with a key that she had given him.

She told Pratt to return the key and leave - which he did - before she called the police.
