ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A Salem police officer who was assigned to a Drug Enforcement Administration task force has pleaded guilty to bribery.

According to court records, Kevin Moore told a woman who was a cooperating defendant that he could help her with her pending federal methamphetamine trafficking case. Records say he told the woman in text messages that he could recommend a favorable sentence to the prosecutor in exchange for sexual favors. Moore then convinced the woman to go for a ride in his official vehicle where she performed a sexual act with Moore.

As part of his guilty plea, Moore also admitted to engaging in similar conduct with two other female cooperating witnesses in federal drug investigations dating back to 2009. The plea was entered Tuesday

His sentencing is scheduled for February.
