CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo. — A former Cripple Creek police officer who was arrested and accused of unlawful sexual contact while on duty pleaded guilty to two charges in the case and was sentenced, according to court records.
Alexander Kenoyer, who was a sergeant and detective with the Cripple Creek Police Department, was arrested Dec. 19, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
Kenoyer pleaded guilty in June to one count of attempt to influence a public servant and one count of public indecency, according to court documents. Other charges were dismissed as part of the plea agreement. He was sentenced Aug. 14 to supervised probation with 60 days of jail time, the district attorney's office said.
The charges stemmed from an alleged inappropriate sexual relationship with a victim of a crime that Kenoyer investigated as a member of the department beginning in October 2021, CBI said in February.
Kenoyer was placed on administrative leave from the department Aug. 24, 2022, and resigned about two months later on Oct. 25.
