Former Log Lane Village Police chief pleads guilty to domestic violence charge

Joshua Katz, 33, stepped down from his post after the May 15 incident.

FORT MORGAN, Colo. — The former chief of the Log Lane Village Police Department has pleaded guilty to two charges in connection with a domestic violence incident.

Joshua Katz, 33, was arrested on May 15. He pleaded guilty in Morgan County Court Thursday to a felony assault charge and one misdemeanor count of criminal mischief, according to court records. All other charges were dropped.

 Katz was given a deferred sentence and must complete two years of probation, court records show.

The district attorney for the 13th Judicial District, Travis Sides, said Katz automatically loses his certification to be a law enforcement officer in Colorado because of the felony conviction. He resigned from his post in June, according to the police department.

Log Lane Village is located a few miles northwest of Fort Morgan.
