EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Springfield police Det. Marco Espinoza pleaded guilty Thursday to driving under the influence and disorderly conduct.

Under a plea deal, he also was convicted of interfering with a police officer during his drunken driving arrest in June.

The Lane County Circuit Court judge sentenced the 33-year-old to 40 hours of community service and a year’s probation. If he abides by court orders and completes a treatment program, the charges will be dismissed.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1mt9Nao ) Espinoza remains on paid leave for an internal investigation.
