MIAMI, Okla. (AP) - A former Miami police officer has pleaded no contest to accusations that she lied to a state grand jury in connection with a man who was injured during an arrest.

The Miami News-Record reports (https://bit.ly/VPOY1V ) 37-year-old Teresa Lashmet pleaded guilty to two counts of outraging public decency and engaging in a pattern of criminal offenses. She received a three-year deferred sentence.

The Oklahoma Attorney General’s office indicted Lashmet in a man’s May 2013 arrest.

The man was arrested on a drunken driving complaint and other driving-related complaints. Footage from a patrol car’s camera showed Lashmet was at the scene during the arrest of the man who was injured by other law enforcement officials.

Lashmet was accused of giving false information to a grand jury and on the arrest affidavit.
