Former Portland police officer pleads guilty to sex crimes

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A former Portland police officer will avoid trial after pleading guilty to child pornography charges. 

As part of a plea deal reached last month former officer Scott Elliott pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography. 

Deputies arrested Elliott last spring for online corruption of a child and luring a minor. Elliott resigned from the force back in May following an investigation into the charges. 

He faces up to 20 years in prison and will be sentenced in February.
