A former Montgomery County police officer was given five months home detention for accessing police databases to help her drug dealer fiancè.
Delores Culmer, of Silver Spring, was sentenced Monday by a federal judge in Greenbelt after pleading guilty earlier this year.
The former Montgomery County police officer acknowledged in a plea agreement that she improperly accessed law enforcement databases at least 20 times, using the databases to check on people involved in disputes with her sister and fiance.
According to Culmer’s guilty plea, she inappropriately accessed the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database, as well as the Maryland Inter-agency Law Enforcement System (MILES) database, to conduct wanted persons checks on her boyfriend, a person with whom her sister was having a dispute, and a friend of Culmer’s boyfriend. Culmer also performed unauthorized registered motor vehicle checks on Culmer’s boyfriend’s brother and a person with whom Culmer’s boyfriend was having a dispute.
