LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) - A former Lexington police officer has made a deal with prosecutors and pleaded no contest to a reduced charge.

Forty-nine-year-old Terrance Smith was convicted last week of attempted burglary and faces up to five years in prison. Two other charges were dropped in exchange for his plea. His sentencing is scheduled for April 28 in Dawson County District Court.

Smith is accused of entering Landmark Implement near Lexington after business hours on May 19 last year, while on duty and without a law enforcement purpose. Video surveillance shows Smith searching through drawers and cabinets in offices before leaving without taking anything of value.
