A man arrested on multiple charges in August pleaded guilty Tuesday to criminal impersonation of a peace officer and was sentenced to probation.

Tavon Dorsey-Hurtt, 25, was originally arraigned on charges including rape, kidnapping and sex abuse in August.

In September, a grand jury indictment removed those charges and he was only indicted on the impersonation charge.

Police released very few details about the investigation and arrest of Dorsey-Hurtt. A probable cause affidavit for his arrest was sealed.

His indictment on the charge of impersonating an officer stated he used, "false law enforcement identification, consisting of a badge and an identification car."

Court documents state Dorsey-Hurtt moved to Portland in February and had spent the month prior to his arrest selling Kirby Vacuums.

In court Tuesday, Dorsey-Hurtt was sentenced to two years supervised probation and 48 hours of community service, with no additional jail time.
