ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A former Salem police officer who was assigned to a Drug Enforcement Administration task force has been sentenced to 2½ years in prison for bribery.

Kevin Moore was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Roanoke.

According to court records, Kevin Moore told a woman who was a cooperating defendant that he could help her with her pending drug 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 persuaded the woman to get into 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 cases dating back to 2009.
