BEL AIR, Md. (AP) — A Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputy has resigned after pleading guilty to accepting payments in exchange for providing unauthorized access to police databases.

The Harford County State’s Attorney’s Office says 30-year-old Todd E. Johnson pleaded guilty Monday to bribery. As part of his plea, he resigned from the Sheriff’s Office. Harford County State’s Attorney Joseph Cassilly said in a statement that based on Johnson’s good record and his cooperation with investigators that prosecutors were not seeking prison time.

Johnson was sentenced to five years in prison and a $1,000 fine, all of which was suspended. He was placed on three years of supervised probation.
