William Blair Downing, 43, was placed on probation for five years and ordered to perform 400 hours of community service as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. He also must undergo a mental health evaluation and will have all of his medications monitored while on probation.
If it’s so minor that he tipped off the criminal about the ongoing investigation, one should wonder should the activities in question be illegal? Maybe it’s just to create a protective racket where those who work for the state are the only one’s allowed to benefit. Not to mention the fact the officer in question was using steroids himself.
