DEPTFORD, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey police officer has been ordered to spend at least 15 months on probation on a commercial bribery conviction. NJ.com reports that 33-year-old Thomas McWain, who was employed with the West Deptford police department, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a third-degree charge separate from the original accusations against him. In a statement before his July 31 sentencing, McWain said he took responsibility for his conduct and characterized his record as that of someone who sought more training to become a better officer. His plea agreement requires him to forfeit his job as an office.
