LOS ANGELES (AP) - A former Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy has been sentenced to nine years in prison for raping a woman while on duty and trying to get another to have sex with him.

Twenty-nine-year-old Jose Rigoberto Sanchez was sentenced Friday and ordered to register as a sex offender.

Prosecutors say that in 2010, Sanchez stopped a driver in Palmdale who had warrant. Authorities say he offered not to arrest the 24-year-old woman in exchange for sex, then drove her to the desert and raped her.

Prosecutors say two nights later, he solicited a bribe in the form of sex acts from a 36-year-old woman who was suspected of drunken driving.

Sanchez pleaded no contest last month to rape under color of authority and soliciting a bribe.
