PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Washington County sheriff’s sergeant who resigned following allegations of sexual misconduct has been sentenced to two years of probation.

The Oregonian reports (https://goo.gl/6M7laf ) that Sgt. Bob Ray says 40-year-old Daniel Cardinal pleaded no contest to official misconduct as part of a plea deal and was sentenced Thursday. The agreement also calls for Cardinal’s law enforcement certification to be revoked.

Cardinal was never arrested in the case and faced no charge until Thursday’s hearing, which wasn’t listed on the public court docket.

Cardinal resigned in May after the sheriff’s office received an anonymous letter stating that he and other deputies had sex while on duty, sexually harassed female colleagues and engaged in other misconduct. Cardinal and two other deputies were placed on administrative leave during the investigation.
