SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A former Simpsonville police officer has pleaded guilty to a charge of misconduct in office.

Multiple news outlets report Ralph Bobo agreed to permanently resign from law enforcement as part of a plea deal Tuesday.

In exchange for the guilty plea, a more serious charge of obstruction of justice against Bobo was dropped.

In 2013, Bobo was indicted on the obstruction charge in connection with the stabbing death of Cassandra Johnson in 1984. He was accused of disposing of physical evidence in that case.

Two weeks ago, the attorney general’s office dismissed a different misconduct in office charge against Bobo and a former Simpsonville police chief.

Bobo and former police chief Charles Alan Reece were indicted in February 2014 on charges of misconduct involving an impounded motorcycle in 2007.
