HAMILTON, Ohio – A former Miami University police sergeant convicted of sex crimes against a female officer will be locked up for a year, the Journal-News reported.

Dustin Young, 36, of Trenton, was sentenced to 180 days in the Butler County Jail and six months in a locked-down community control center on Wednesday for gross sexual imposition and abduction.

Young pulled the woman into his lap and touched her crotch and pinned her against a locker, according to court records. The crimes occurred between Aug. 1 and Nov. 12, 2016, according to the indictment.

Young was found guilty of the two felony charges in October following a bench trial before Butler County Common Pleas Judge Michael Oster. Oster handed down the sentence.

Young was also sentenced to five years of community control and declared a Tier One sex offender.

Young resigned from the department on Jan. 11, 2017, ending his 15-year career. He was placed on administrative leave on Nov. 22, 2016, according to an internal report.
