Former trooper receives probation in misconduct case

A former Maryland State Trooper was spared jail time but sentenced to two years of supervised probation Friday for a misconduct-in-office conviction stemming from a controversial DUI arrest nearly two years ago.

The former trooper, Marlon Iglesias, was acquitted last month of three sex offense charges. He was convicted of a single count of misconduct in office.

The case against the one-time trooper hinged primarily on the word of the alleged victim, who nearly a year after the traffic stop told authorities Iglesias has inappropriately touched and fondled her after she'd been pulled over on Interstate 270, handcuffed and taken to a nearby station. But during testimony, her record for honesty was cast in doubt.

Montgomery Circuit Judge Thomas Craven sentenced Iglesias to three years, but suspended them all, according to attorneys in the case.

What constitutes "misconduct in office"? What exactly did he do? He was acquitted of the sex offense charges...and rightly so since the accuser was a known liar. I think he should have been acquitted of ALL the charges. Glad he didn't get jail time, as I believe he is totally innocent.
