A district court judge granted a plea deal Monday to former Albuquerque Police Department officer Matthew Kindle, who pleaded no contest to an attempt to violate ethical principles of public service. 

In 2011, Kindle was caught talking about sex and exposing himself to an undercover officer posing as a prostitute. It was part of a sting set up after he allegedly promised to get a suspect’s charges dropped in return for sexual favors.

In addition to pleading no contest on Monday, he apologized for the impact his actions have had on APD.

“Any way that this case has negatively impacted the men and women of law enforcement I am truly sorry for,” Kindle said. “Because there are many officers I’m sure that have received grief over this that they did not deserve.”

The judge sentenced Kindle to nearly a year of supervised probation and 50 hours of community service. She says that’s in light of the condition that he has no intention to re-apply as a police officer.
