LAS VEGAS (AP) - An ex-Las Vegas police officer accused of groping female drivers and forcing them to expose their breasts during traffic stops has been sentenced to two years in prison.

KSNV-TV reports that Clark County District Court Judge Abbi Silver handed down the sentence to John Norman on Thursday morning.

Norman had pleaded guilty to misdemeanor lewdness and oppression under the color of office. He will serve a year for each count.

Prosecutors dropped felony charges.

Before sentencing, the 34-year-old said he recognized the error of his ways. Two of his victims asked the judge for the maximum sentence.

Norman resigned from the police department last year after two women came forward.
