A former D.C. police officer pleaded guilty to three counts of misdemeanor fraud in connection with his duties in 2008 and 2009, the Metropolitan Police Department said.

David Cephas entered the plea Thursday, police said. The 22-year veteran resigned from the department in June.

Cephas falsified logs documenting certification times in the deployment of the department's mobile photo radar equipment, police said. Police recalled 200 radar citations and refunded fines totaling more than $17,000.

As part of his plea deal, Cephas agreed to pay restitution of more than $17,000.
