Copping a plea

This was the most prudent thing for him to do IMHO.

Cop takes plea in sex case
He also gets deferred adjudication in case involving woman accosted for sex.
By Jessica Kwong - Express-News

A police officer accused of accosting an 18-year-old woman for sex after she was targeted for a drug arrest four years ago pleaded no contest Wednesday to one count of official oppression and will lose his Texas peace officer's license.

Rather than go before a jury that was empaneled a day earlier, Victor Gonzalez, 40, a six-year SAPD veteran, entered a plea agreement in which four counts of official oppression were dismissed.

His sentence includes one year of deferred adjudication probation, a $500 fine and 50 hours of community service.
