The Everett Herald says 48-year-old Daniel Lavely declined to speak at his hearing Monday in Snohomish County Superior Court. He must register as a sex offender and be supervised for a year after his release from jail.
A jury in August convicted him, believing that he had engaged in sex with a woman in his custody. Lavely denied having sex with the woman. He said on the stand he had lied about his dealings, saying he had simply forgotten to call into dispatchers when he picked the woman up and where he dropped her off.
According to the official police investigation, Lavely initially stopped the 28-year-old Seattle woman for jaywalking on Highway 99 in Edmonds on May 6, 2012.
The woman was released shortly afterward, but she was contacted again by Lavely later that evening on an unrelated call. This time, Lavely allegedly took temporary custody of the woman, put her in his patrol car and drove her to a remote location where the two had sexual intercourse, according to the investigation.
The woman reported the incident to law enforcement a few days later.
Lavely resigned from the department in January following an investigation into the May 2012 incident.
