PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland police officer has resigned after he pled guilty to official misconduct stemming from an incident that happened last year.

In July 2015, Officer Jeromie Palaoro, a seven-year veteran with PPB, was accused of making unwanted sexual advances towards a woman after he met her on a domestic assault call.

Palaoro was put on leave during the investigation.

On Friday, Palaoro plead guilty to one count of official misconduct in the first degree and resigned from the Portland Police Bureau.

PPB said as part of his plea agreement, Palaoro also had his police certification revoked by the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training and may no longer serve as a police officer.

"The Portland Police Bureau takes allegations of misconduct seriously," said Chief Lawrence P. O'Dea III. "I appreciate the work of the Detective Division and the District Attorney's Office for their work on this case to bring about a resolution."
