GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — A former Montgomery County police officer accused of illegally using computers to help her drug-dealing fiance has pleaded guilty in the case.

Delores Culmer, 37, of Silver Spring pleaded guilty Wednesday to obtaining unauthorized information from protected government computers for her personal financial gain or commercial advantage.

According to a plea agreement, Culmer improperly accessed law enforcement databases on at least 20 occasions, including performing a “wanted persons” check on her boyfriend and a friend of her boyfriend’s.

Culmer faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced June 13.
