A former Woodburn police officer admitted to having sex in his patrol car while on duty and pleaded guilty to the charge of first-degree official misconduct.

Timothy Cobos pleaded guilty Tuesday and was sentenced to 1 1/2 years probation and 40 hours of community service. He also turned in his police certification.

The Marion County District Attorney’s Office reported Monday that Cobos was being charged with three counts of official misconduct for acts that occurred over the last two years.

Cobos worked for the Woodburn Police Department for 11 years. On Tuesday, Chief Jim Ferraris called Cobos a “corrupt officer” who betrayed the badge and the people of Woodburn.

It was revealed in court that two of the charges related to Cobos having sex with his girlfriend in a patrol car. The third count of official misconduct was for using a police database to look up personal information for a second girlfriend.

Cobos is married with children. He resigned from the Woodburn Police Department last week.

“It breaks my heart to see this happen, but it makes our community stronger and our police department stronger,” Ferraris said.
