A San Bernardino County Probation Correctional Officer, entrusted to work with and counsel offenders, found himself on the other side of law after a Pomona judge sentenced him to two years for impersonating a cop.
Douglass Leon Weaver, 44, received a two-year jail sentence for e and making unwanted physical contact with a woman.
According to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, Weaver pleaded no contest to false imprisonment, first degree burglary with a person present and impersonating an officer in a Pomona Superior Courthouse Aug. 16.
Following Weaver’s plea, a judge sentenced him to two years in state prison, according to the D.A. Office.
Weaver was arrested in connection to a May 11 incident, when Weaver pulled over an intoxicated driver on the Westbound I-210 Freeway Sunflower off-ramp. Weaver, who was off-duty at the time, flashed the driver a badge and offered to take the driver home.
Five days later, Weaver returned to the home and made unwanted physical contact with a female resident.
In a statement, Chief Probation Officer Michelle Scray stated, “We will not tolerate off duty conduct that brings discredit upon the San Bernardino County Probation Department and the professional men and women who work here.”
