A probation officer in Massachusetts who is accused of mistreating a woman on probation pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to lying to an FBI agent, the Boston Globe reports.
Lawrence Plumer, 46, reached an agreement with prosecutors that could mean he dodges jail and is instead sentenced to a year of probation.
Plumer is accused of showing pornography to a woman serving probation, among other allegations that have not been made public.
Prosecutors said the “mistreatment” involved the deprivation of the woman’s rights.
In addition to pleading guilty, Plumer agreed to resign from his job as probation officer in Suffolk Superior Court, the Boston Globe wrote.
